Where ?: Candida/yeast can infect several areas of the body including mouth, esophagus, skin, vagina etc... White coating on the tongue or inside cheeks may be candida but the best way is to get your symptoms checked out by an expert to make sure there is nothing concerning going on. Once you know nothing "bad" is going on then you can use supplements and be assured that you are not masking anything.
