Hi...the burning sensation in the mouth, dry lips could be due to the same dryness causing watering of eyes and ambient weather. But the white coating on the tongue could be oral thrush.

May I request you to upload an image of the tongue please.

Kind regards ***** ***** Sumanth Amperayani

Okay

Hello, I have seen the image. This does not look like oral thrush. But I observe that the tongue is rather dry.

The whitish coating is significant only if there is fever daily and pain in the tummy suggestive of typhoid which is highly unlike in your case.

I feel that you may be under hydrated.

I suggest you keep yourself well hydrated with good amount of water to avoid this dryness of lips and for the coating on the tongue you need to daily use a tongue cleaner twice a day at least and a listerine mouth wash please.

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.
