Bad taste: Look at your tongue in the mirror. If it is any color but pink (i.e., white, green, yellow or black coating) then you might have a condition called thrush that needs treating. You would need to see your family doctor to get the medicine that treats the condition. The bad taste usually resolves in 3-10 days.
