Yellow in the mouth

My husband has discovered yellow lines on his tongue and the roof of his mouth yellow. Does anyone know what this is? He did just complete a round of antibiotics for a respitory infection.

Sorry no I have absolutely no idea unless he has developed some sort of thrush from the antibiotic? It sounds like maybe the doctor should take a look and double check it out just in case cause then he needs that yucky swish around your mouth medicine (I can't remember someone else will know what it is called) for it to go away.

nystatin is the script.  I have 2 bottles in the fridge.  never had thrush until 3 years ago.  Does your husband say his mouth hurts or stings and does food taste nasty?

He says he has a medicine taste. But he hasn't said anything about it hurting or anything. Just noticed it today, Gastro nurse said probably from meds or something he ate.

Yes everything tastes like medicine on treatment.......one of the reasons I lost so much weight (but as soon as food tasted normal again that problem went away fast let me tell ya!).

Yes thrush does tend to hurt and I think it makes your mouth white.

A whitish coating but anything one eats stains the white like coffee for instance.  I have had the inside of my mouth swollen and my tongue has had cracks on it.

Risk factors (for thrush) [with good pictures]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oral_candidiasis

  * Newborn babies.
    * Diabetics with poorly controlled diabetes.
    * As a side effect of medication, most commonly having taken antibiotics. Inhaled corticosteroids for treatment of lung conditions (e.g., asthma or COPD) may also result in oral candidiasis: the risk may be reduced by regularly rinsing the mouth with water after taking the medication.
    * People with an immune deficiency (e.g. as a result of AIDS/HIV or chemotherapy treatment).
    * Women undergoing hormonal changes, like pregnancy or those on birth control pills.
    * Denture users.

I've had yellow coating on tongue and yellow roof of mouth since December. I think I'm somewhat allergic to the meds or something, I dunno. Just keep on truckin', I guess.
