Thanks for the additional information. I'm sorry I had to attend a meeting and could not get right back to you.

It is possible that some of the ingredients of the cleanse are irritating your tongue and throat. Hopefully you aren't seeing any more roundworms in your stool. Seeing them is the only way to know if you are infected or not.

Coated tongue can come from many things including gastric reflux and ulcers as well as dental problems, viral respiratory infections, etc. It really isn't possible to say what is causing it without seeing it and running a test to see if it is bacterial, viral or fungal.

Please let me know what additional questions you have about this. I'll be online for a while tonight.

Kind regards,
