I have had painless white stuff on back of tongue and swollen taste buds for a few months. I think it is thrush. Will gentian violet cure this?
See a doctor: You also asked about gential violet for vaginal yeast infection. See my reply to that question. Oral thrush is uncommon in otherwise healthy persons. "Painless white stuff" usually isn't yeast (thrush), just a garden variety "coated tongue", which can occur with colds and any number of minor health issues. Don't use GV, which isn't recommended for oral treatment. See a doctor for both problems.
I have white stuff on back of my tongue, when I brush most of it comes off but then it rebuilds again during the day, is this normal?
Examination: To play it safe, get it looked at. A white coating on the tongue is fairly common and the bumps you see may be the normal presence of large taste buds. Without seeing you, however, it is impossible to know if there is an issue requiring treatment. At the very least get a tongue scraper and see if it cleans up at all.See 2 more doctor answers

Some sort of brown stuff all over tongue with much more at the back. Can scrape off but more comesback. Large red lumps all over tongue. What is this?
Brown tongue: Is usually caused by plaque, staining, debris, bacteria especially in patients that smoke & drink lots of coffee. Red bumps are probably normal of more likely inflamed papillae (taste buds). Just like you have to brush\floss your teeth & shower or bath every day, you should use a tongue blade to keep your tongue clean. All this is conjecture, see your own dentist for exam & accurate appraisal.See 2 more doctor answers
Can syphilis symptoms of the throat be a white coating on the tongue and a layer on white stuff at the back of the throat?
Should I see a doctor? Do I have tonsil stones? Okay so about a year ago my tongue developed white bubbles in the back. I figured it'd go away so I ignored it. Then, my tongue started to get white stuff on it, which I would scrap off but it'd come back so
Depends: Tonsil stones are little white stones visible in the tonsils (located on the lateral areas of your throat). People with tonsil stones feel like there is "something annoying" stuck in their throat and are constantly trying to clear it. A film on your tongue is not unusual. Most people need to brush or scrape their tongue regularly to clean this film away.See 1 more doctor answer
I have had a cold complete with sore throat. I have big bumps on the back of my tongue with white stuff on my tongue. Is this normal for a cold?
It can be: The big bumps on the back of your tongue are probably your taste buds. It's not uncommon for the tongue to become coated with a cold, because your immune system is under attack and this gives the bacteria on the tongue a free pass to multiply and grow. You can just brush the surface of your tongue every day and that will help eliminate the coating.See 1 more doctor answer

See doc now: Most minor viral illnesses run about 2 weeks, are worst on about day 4 and then start to get better. If you are feeling this bad a week in, go to the doc. With a swollen tonsil, you could have a throat abscess which can be very dangerous. "Hot Potato" voice is a symptom of this. Coughing blood is not normal. Any problems breathing are considered an emergency.
My brother has had cough (bringing up stuff) for 6 weeks now has cold, cough worst plus slight pains in back and funny taste in mouth. Is this cold?

Tissue sloughing: The previous answer about cinamon could be the answer, but the underlying problem is that something is causing the sloughing. It is not a real health problem but I understand your concern. Try the advice on toothpaste. Also medications or allergies could be playing a part. Be a detective and try to think back to when it started and then what you may have taken or health situations going on.See 1 more doctor answer
