Yellow Coated Tongue: is an inflammation of the tongue papillae. The condition occurs when bacteria in the mouth produce pigments which cause the tongue to develop a yellow coating. The causes are poor oral hygiene, medications, fever, dehydration, and mouth breathing. Use a tongue scraper and hydrogen peroxide (5:1 water) as a treatment.
