Dear customer;


The following medical conditions are some of the possible causes of Hairy Tongue. ( Abnormal sensation where the tongue feels hairy or furry) There are likely to be other possible causes, so ask your doctor about your symptoms.

Bacterial infection
Certain foods
Antibiotic therapy
Radiation therapy to the head

My advice to you is that you should consult a physician who will examine you and find out the disease causing this symptom.After diagnosis proper treatment should be done.I hope it helps you.

what about medication, I take beta blockers and lisenopril for BP?
Expert:  dr.sehr replied 7 years ago.



ok,about medication beta blockers and lisinopril are not causing this.Long term antibiotic therapy, especially broad spectrum antibiotics are causing this disease in some cases.
