Really sore Tongue

OK, new one for me. White coated tongue that is very tender. There are like little nubs on it that are most painful. Am trying some watermelon now.

Sounds like thrush, a yeast infection.
I haven't seen it since my kids were babies.
Do a search on thrush and see if it fits.

yes...seems like that could be it. Am trying research a remedy. Thanks for your speedy reply. You are appreciated. Hope that you are continuing to feel better with each new day. :)

During tx I noticed I sometimes had a white tongue and used a mouthwash without alcohol and brushed my tongue every night.  I had a few minor sores, but they weren't a problem.  It's possible this could be thrush, so I'd discuss with the doctor if it persists.  Several on the forum have had this problem and used Magic Mouthwash (with Nystantin) with success.  I hope some cue in to relay their experience.  Good luck.
