Does a UTI cause a white coating on the tounge?
I have a UTI and I am on antibiotics but I have noticed towards the back of my tongue there is a slight layer of white stuff forming. It doesn't hurt of create any kind of irritation, I'm not really sure why I checked my tongue in the first place but now I'm worried!

Hi there,
After using antibiotics there can be a tongue infection with Candida albicans a yeast infection. These medications can cause thrush by allowing the fungus to overgrow on the tongue. An  oral thrush infection scrapes off and leaves a reddened area compared to a white coating from buildup of dead skin cells on the tongue when scraped with a tongue depressor .It is best to see  a doctor and get the diagnosis confirmed. Treatment will be specific based on the cause. Keep me posted.
Best luck and regards!
