Thank you for your question.

Greenish discoloration of the tongue is usually due to yeast infection. Yeast infection of the tongue occurs readily when the person is suffering from dehydration and the tongue is dry.

Normally, saliva helps to wash away debris from the tongue and prevents yeast growth. but if dehydration occurs, the saliva flow is less and yeast grows readily.

Please consult a doctor for a prescription for antifungal medicines like Nystatin. Also drink plenty of fluids to help keep the tongue moist and hydration.

Eat fresh fruits - this will help scrape away the yeast growing on the tongue.

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.
