Everybody has some sort of tongue coating. Make sure you are not confusing that with thrush. Thrush is not common in healthy adults generally but can happen in HIV+ people when there t cell count drops considerably in the later stages. Thrush usually affects the whole mouth-not just the tongue and its usually white patches sometimes cottage cheese like that can be scraped off.

You can go to to see some slides of it.
