In brief: White Furry Tongue

A white furry tongue could be many things.
It could be a yeast infection? It could be a precursor to something more severe. Go see your Dentist, Oral Surgeon, or ENT (ear,nose, and Throat) Doctor. The solution could be something as simple as a tongue scraper, a mouth wash, or a medication. Do not ignore this.

In brief: Candida albicans

Candida albicans is a fungus accumulates usually on your tongue or inner cheeks.
The condition is a minor problem if you're healthy. Candida infections can occur when your immune system is weakened by disease or drugs such as steroids. Eating unsweetened yogurt and acidophilus capsules will solve the problem. Rec.: see your dentist if the condition gets painful.
