In brief: Needs evaluation

Fungal infections of the tongue and oral cavity are not uncommon.
A recent course of oral antibiotics or daily use of inhalers can increase the risk.There are many other conditions which can mimic a fungal infection.Most, like geographic tongue, are self limited and harmless, but some are very serious and may be a sign of an underlying health problem. Make an appointment to have your tongue evaluated.
