Black Tongue


Black tongue can be an overgrowth of the little hairy papillae on the tongue and isn't harmful. You can scrub the spot with a soft baby toothbrush twice daily & it should go away. (Also, think if you have given anything that could stain the tongue--iron drops, pepto bismal, metal teether)

There are a few things it could be. Has you baby recently has antibiotics? Thrush is a yeast growth that can appear in the mouth from antibiotics or poor nutrition and can look almost like cottage cheese. Geographic tongue is harmless patches that are white and flaky. You should have a pediatrician check your baby to diagnose the cause.

White on tongue


It could be milk, especially if a powdered formula is used. however if it does not scrape or wipe away with a wet cloth. Then it could be thrush, a yeast infection in the mouth. Look at her gums too and inner cheeks it can spread. The doctor will give you some yummy drops for her mouth to kill the fungus.

Couple of causes


There are a couple of causes for white spots on the tongue. A common one at that age would be bite marks from his incisors. At 21 months, he is old to have thrush, unless he was recently on an antibiotic. Some viral infections may cause similar lesions. If they act like they bother him, are worsening, or have been there for a long time, I would suggest seeing his pediatrician.

Possible "thrush"


On the surface, it sounds like thrush, a yeast infection in the mouth.Yeast lives normally on body surfaces but multiplies in warm, moist areas. It's common in infants but less common in toddlers, so I suggest seeing his/her doctor to make sure that's what it is. Recent antibiotics recently it can make it more likely; there are other less common medical reasons; if it is yeast there is treatment.

This needs to be investigated by a professional. Make a dentist appointment ASAP. Don't let this go without having a dentist see it. Tongue lesions can be a serious illness that needs immediate attention.

See an ID doctor


If you are an adult, not diabetic or on antibiotics or steroids and have thrush you must be tested for HIV disease and have your immunity assessed. Thrush seldom occurs in normal adults, and particularly when it fails to respond to standard treatment it is an ominous sign.
