Is this glossitis?

Here's a picture of my tongue:


My doctor believed it to be glossitis. I have recently had 90 tablets (phenoxymethylpenicillin) for tonsillitis however, it turns out I had glandular fever, not tonsillitis, so my doctor is thinking that's why my tongue is looking like this because the good bacteria was killed.

Does that sound right or could this be something more serious?

I did have unprotected oral sex with my girlfriend of 7 years (me giving her oral sex). But unsure if it's related. Never had this before
