Probably: See your physician this can occur if you are taking antibiotics. From your other posts, it is important that you see a physician to determine what medical problem you may have and how to best treat them.

Contact DDS: if not taking antibiotics, see your dentist to rule out any dental issues. Use a tongue scraper to keep the surface of the tongue clean

Mouth: Get a culture to confirm its not bacterial. Gargle with salt water, add a probiotic and give the drug 4 to 6 days to work
