Do I have hairy tongue? Not sure. What does hairy tongue look like?

Dark, long tastebuds. Hairy tongue happens when some of the taste buds on the top of the tongue get very long and discolored. The discolorations can come from food, tobacco and/or bacteria. Using a tongue cleaner over the affected area several times a day for several days can sometimes help.
Google it. Should be able to find a photo of it. Basically looks like brown or black hairl growing in the center of the tongue. Start stroking your tongue with a toothbrush and a lot of tooth paste.
