Odd tongue color.

I seem to have a problem with persisting coffee colored tongue, the thing is I haven't drank coffee or soda or even tea for almost a week to make it like that.

Online research suggested only two causes, one is jaundice and the other is a reaction to antibiotics. My skin is not jaundiced and the last time I had antibiotics was a year ago. Also the pictures that went along with those causes didn't look like mine either.

I was sick the last week, had this odd cold that was accompanied by sore throat and a feeling that there was congestion somewhere between the nose and throat. But there is a possibility the tongue color appeared earlier than that.

Is there anything else that would explain this?

Re: Odd tongue color.

Possibly a sinus infection. Go to your doctor and ask him about it. Also certain vitamins, oils, and acne meds can cause discoleration of the tounge. But go get it checked just to be sure.
