A 20-year-old female asked:
Does white coating on tongue and pink/redness tiny bumps at back of tongue and redness at the back of mouth mean something serious?

Serious=no: It could mean thrush, which is a minor yeast infection or just milk solids retained on the rough tongue skin. If it is there & irritating it can be easily treated when you decide to have it evaluated.
