A 49-year-old member asked:

Woke up with orange markings on my tongue, what could this be?

Stain: The most likely explanation is recently ingested food with orange coloration added to it. Candy, in particular, can leave strong short term intra-oral staining.

Candy or foods: Usually the orange color is from candy or foods. Some antibiotics can cause an orange tongue. If it does not clear up, in a few days then you should see a doctor or oral surgeon.
