white furry tongue....help!!!!

Posted by Eleni on May 26, 2003 at 06:53:40:

Hi, I seem to have a lot of white furriness on my tongue...I have tried scraping it off when I brush my teeth..or even use the floss thread to scrap it off..no luck! I don't have bad breath, so what is it...is it candida?? I have looked at friends' tongue's and theirs are pink and with no white stuff on it...just looked at mine, not as bad as other times, but still there, what can I do? please any advise would be helpful. Thank you

Did it just turn white or has it always been white? If this is the way your tongue has always looked, don't worry. My tongue has always had a sort of whiteness to it. I can remember being around 8 and telling my mom I thought I had thrush. (I didn't even know what that was at the time.) Now at 24, my tongue is still white and it doesn't hurt or have any symptoms so I am skeptical about the fact that it's a medical condition.

I agree - it doesn't always mean something medical - just like skin tones are different. I'm sure we all have very varied levels of color due to our ethnic backgrounds and so on...
BUT if it bothers you or you have other symptoms, I'd look into other reliefs...

Constipation makes it furry. Drink more water.

If I had that problem, I would make a mouth wash of 1 teaspoon bleach in 4 ounces of water and gargle with it. Then I would brush my tongue with it. Hope this helps.

Hi, Eleni.

This is an early sign of LGS.

Be happy that your first warning was not IBS, Crohn's or Ulcerative Colitis!

Let us know what you learn.

Thank you all for your advice and comments, I will start brushing my tongue when I brush my teeth and watch my diet for a while. I think it hasn't helped since I had two bouts of antibiotics in 2 months. Actually can't really remember if my tongue has always been white and furry. But thank you all anyway

Hello,

I had that also. I took 1 cap of the powdered form of Primal Defense at night before I went to bed. Swished just about a mouthfull of water (not tap) and swallowed. Within a couple of weeks the white was gone. AMAZING!!

Give it a try...
