Thread: White coating on tongue

    White coating on tongue

    hello
    Has anybody here ever experienced having a white coating on their tongue that won?t go away. Dr put me on anti fungal mouth wash. I rad somewhere that it could be related to having some kind of disease or illness. Lately I?ve been having a lot of digestive and bloating issues. I?ll be seeing a GI doctor june 11. I?m a c4/5 quad 19 years post with a sigmoid end colostomy I elected to have1.5 years ago.
    Thanks

    It's almost always caused by cellular and food debris filling up the spaces on the tongue's surface, and can be removed by gently brushing and/or scraping the tongue. You can use a washcloth on your tongue, or purchase a specialized tongue scraper.
