I have had a white tongue for about 6 years now. It happened after I had my youngest son who was born at 28 weeks by emergency c-section. The doctors had me on an I. V. Antibiotic every 4 hours for 4 days. It was to the point where they had me on so much I couldn't even eat anything. Anyways, since then I have tried countless ways of clearing it up with no success. I mean every way on this page did pretty much nothing except for the glycerine! I am AMAZED at how fast and how pink my tongue is again! While I have only been using it 24 hours, the whiteness is almost gone. It still has a small whiteish tint but like I said, it has only been 24 hours. I hope with continued use, and drinking more water my tongue will be back to itself again in no time!! I ordered a 16oz bottle on amazon for $8 (huge I know since I only use a couple drops on my tongue scraper). The stores in my area wanted $7 for half that size so I went with the better deal. You can also use vegetable glycerine for hair and skin as well. Haven't tried that yet, but youtube users seemed to be pleased with the outcome for that use as well. I also read that glycerine has over 1500 uses so there is always something to do with it! For anyone with this problem, start with the glycerine first and don't waste time and money like I did :)
I've had a caustic feeling on one side of my tongue for about 9 months now. I noticed it right after I had my amalgam fillings removed. I've tried everything and haven't found anything that gives me relief. Just today I realize I always put my iodine with Kelp drops under my tongue on the side that is irritated. I started to wonder if that could be the source of the problem. Then I read the iodine is suppose to be placed in water and drank...not dropped under the tongue. Could this be what is causing my problem?

Hi Ted, I had my Bottom Left Wisdom teeth removed 6 months ago, and since then the left side of my Tongue feels Numb, Scald and Dry with a very nasty taste. I dont think I lost any Taste because food still tastes normal but its the feeling on the Left side of my Tongue that has been bothering me for months now. The nasty Taste changes almost every month and and it feels as if I constantly have a Square Battery on my tongue (Metallic Taste). My Orthodontist said the Lingual Nerve must have been bruised when extracting my wisdom teeth, and will heal overtime, But its been over 6 months now. I'm very worried it will never heal. Is there anything you can recommend I try? Hope you can Help....

I read on here that several people were looking for a cure for black tongue - in my case this occurred after aggressive antibiotic treatment including metronidazole which some people do claim causes this horrible side effect, (amongst many! ). I suspected candida being involved and based my approach on that. The colour was similar to liquorice stain and involved the whole top of the tongue. There was no way to clean it off and I felt disgusting with it. The blackness has only just cleared away, it took 4 weeks, and I don't know which part of my regimen played the biggest part - if any- but here's what I did:
Diet very low sugar and carb, mostly veg really but with small amounts of fish and eggs. No wheat in any form. No dairy except for live yoghourt, plain, which I find quite difficult to eat but easier when grated garlic and turmeric mixed in - as a kind of 'dressing' for the salady diet. Celery seemed very 'cleansing' and healing.
I took acidophilus capsules at every meal. I also did a tongue clean after every meal - it was quite unpleasant but seemed useful, ACV on a piece of towelling (to be burnt or thrown away after single use - cut up clean old towel for this) wiped over the tongue as thoroughly as bearable, followed by a rinse with warm water. I also took ACV twice a day. I changed to a bicarb toothpaste and after cleaning mouth and tongue each morning and night I soothed the mouth with coconut oil - swill for as long as possible then spit out. It has taken a month but my tongue is pink again now.
Hope this works for others.
For over 5 years I have had a burning tongue, sore gums and a coated tongue. Has anyone tried Oil Pulling for these symptoms?
Thank you for your miracle site. Being pensioners money is an affliction in itself. What joy to find this site. Well here is my small contribution.
Re-aligning a dropped little tongue. At the onset of a bout of sore throat or flu, the small tongue seems to drop back into the throat, affecting the ability to swollow. and is also very uncomfortable, almost worse than the flu its self. Take a small amount of pepper, preferbly white pepper, on the very tip of a round tipped knife and carefully dab onto the tip of the little tongue. This will pull the tongue back into position.
I tell anyone who will listen about this amazing site.
I had burning tongue for very long time and then i went to dentist and remove all my amalgam filings (metal fillings) and my tongue is fine now(sorry for spelling).
Hello there.... I enjoy cooking immensely and use various if not all the spices I can get my hands on.... Because I love the robust flavor! There is nothing more irritating than eating Bourbon Glazed Salmon and having it taste like nothing... UGH UGH... Knowing that my spices have many uses, I began to dig around for what would fix the all time annoying "white tongue".... Hence I couldnt taste any of my robust flavors....
So, I came across the salt fix. Needless to say, after about 10 minutes and looking like a St. Bernard (the drooling )which I thought was quite funny by the way.... Here is what I did.... I salted my tongue with the sea salt, brushed my tongue with the sea salt, gargled with the sea salt... And lo and behold... Ten minutes later.. I found my pink tongue!!!!!!
