Hi Dr Josh,
I have not recently taken antibiotics, my tongue appears whitish yes, as for cottage cheese, I wouldnt go as far to say that its a cottage cheese white. It kind of looks like the tongue in the Rhomboid Glossitis picture of this website http://www.aafp.org/afp/2010/0301/p627.html, however the tip of my tongue and around the sides are not white. They are are just a smooth pink colour. I have had my tongue become white like this in the past but without any complications or pain, usually just happens if I eat junk food or something bad and dont brush my teeth / tongue. I have tried using mouth wash but it doesnt help.
I dont have any other medical problems, and am quite healthy (apart from this). Im not exactly sure what you mean by cottony feeling though. Ass i can feel is pain in the tongue?
If I were to use Nystatin drops what course of treatment would you suggest?
1, 1ml drop (4?) times daily for how long?
I just have one last question,
I have tenderness and pain the the gums when chewing on food, ie an apple, particularly underneath my tongue. Is this a typical symptom of Oral Thrush or could it be something else
Thank you Dr Josh,
You have my personal gratification in assisting me with this issue.
Thank you again.
