Hi
Expert:  Dr. Behere replied 1 year ago.

Hello,

Ive seen your photo.

Your tongue has coating of food debris , and also evidence of a superficial fungal infection, candidiasis.

Please get a good tongue cleaner from the local pharmacy, and clean your tongue when you brush your teeth.

Also, get a mouthwash containing Chlorhexidine Gluconate, like Listerine, and gargle with it for 7 days. The white coating will disappear and your bad breath will go away.

If this doesnt work, you will need to visit a dentist to rule out other factors causing bad breath, like food lodgement, cavities, gingivitis, periodontitis, etc.

Hope this answers your question. Feel free to contact me again for more information. Please leave a positive rating for me if this answer has helped you. I do not get credit for it otherwise.

Good Luck !
