Customer Question
I have had white...

I have had white tongue for about 2 months, at first I thought I have oral thrush I went to see the doctor he prescribed me with ratio- NYSTATIN I USED IT FOR 2 weeks and it didn't help, I went to walk in clinic after two weeks to ask for more RX still no help, so after 3 weeks I went to see my family Dortor and he said that it was no oral thrush but he was not able to determine my symptoms at all, at first I notice that I always feel my tongue was like it's been burned like after you drank hot soup which I didn't, I do feel better whenever I take halls cough candy. But I don't feel comfortable with my tongue, like it's kind of dry or something, I can not scrap away the white things on my tongue, I've been gargle with salty water and even apply apple cyder vinegar on my tongue (using q tips) but nothing seems to improve anything. thank you

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the cough? Are you having any other symptoms?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
