my toungue has a weird texture and "Soaks" in the color of what i eat or drink. ive tried to brush it off and skrape it, but nothing works. it makes my breath stink and im really insecure about getting close to anybody. anyone know what this is and how to get rid of it?
brush your teeth and toungue, use some mouthwash and you'll be ok.
seriously, no lie, i brush my teeth twice a day. i brush my tongue every time, up n down, side to side, n in circles,n sometimes make it bleed in small spots. im on quit a few medications and take a few inhaled medications twice a day too. could that be causing this?
I wonder if the problem is that your damaging your tongue by brushing it too hard and too much.
my tounge looks like i chewed on a bunch of blades lol looks like it has a bunch of cuts on it. ive told my doctor but he hadnt a clue
yeah,i got a real geographic tongue see?hehe
its no prob for me.
i brush my tongue about 2 times a week.
i read that the fron of your tongue really aint the cause i bad breathe.
its the back thats the culprit!
the front rubs on your hard rough upper palet all the time,the back is on your smoothe throat area.
so you get a build over there of bacteria and they casue BB.
so brush gently from as far back as possbile(dont swallow you toothebrush!)
and brush from the back forwards.do that gently.the front of your tongue probably aint the problem.but i guess i cant say?try that ok.hope it helps.
go see an oral hygienest about it,i'm sure there's a solution.its a lil embarrassing,but so worth it,thats what they're there for.i saw mine 2 days ago and asked her about my tongue and brushing it.she was great,said she's being gagging every morning for the past 13 years,and that brushing your tongue is essential.
tri oral works wonders for bad breath, prevents morning breath too

Bring Inhalers to Dental Visits
People with asthma are at greater risk for cavities, bad breath, and gum problems, according to a report in General Dentistry online (2/2/03). This is because they have a tendency to be mouth breathers, which when combined with asthma medications causes a low saliva flow. Without saliva?s cleansing effects, the risk for cavities and bad breath increases. Also, asthma inhalers may irritate the back roof of the mouth, causing a reddish lesion. This irritation may lead to infection that could spread to the throat and the rest of the mouth. It is important for people with asthma to rinse their mouth with water following inhaler use. People with asthma also should inform their dentist of their condition and bring their inhaler to dental visits in case they experience an asthma attack during dental procedures, the study authors concluded.
I may be late but, scrape it with a spoon. Make sure it's in the far back.

i was feeling sick,and well i gagged and just couldnt hold it back.
