    Re: NOt sure if i have an oral yeast infection.

    A white-ish thin coating on the back of the tongue is probably normal. Not enough saliva, dehydration, alcohol and coffee drinking, and lots of other stuff can cause a white/gray coating on the back of the tongue.

    Could be the beginning of an oral yeast infection (thrush) - but most doctors can catch it even in it's early stages. Thrush tends to look like cottage cheese, creamy white, sort of lumpy looking. If it is thrush, you'll know - it'll get worse.

    If you have a suppressed immune system, use an inhaler, have diabetes, your a smoker, take antibiotics or corticosteroids, have oral piercings, you're more likely to get thrush.
