Candida albicans?: Is a fungus accumulates usually on your tongue or inner cheeks. The condition is a minor problem if you're healthy. Candida infections can occur when your immune system is weakened by disease or drugs such as steroids. Eating unsweetened yogurt and acidophilus capsules will solve the problem. Rec.: see your dentist if the condition gets painful.

White: Anything white, on tissue that should be pink, should be investigated. Could be thrush, lichen planus, candida, albicans, bacterial infection, herpes, leukoplakia, cancer, traumatic ulceration, or many other things. See dentist for differential diagnosis and treatment.
