Thanks for writing in.
The white spots on your urethra can be candidiasis or chancroid .
White tongue can also be due to candidiasis or coated tongue.Candidiasis is a better fit as it explains both your symptoms.It is treatable with fluconazole tablets orally and clotrimazole cream topically.
Also I would like to know-
Is there any itchy/painful spots?
Do you have burning micturition ?
Can you upload the photographs of urethra and tongue?
Do you have any symptoms in oral cavity like raw sensation or pain?
Do you have fever or other body complaints?
Do you or your family member have diabetes?

Answer the question and upload the photographs and we can continue the discussion here.
Hope this helps.

Hi again,
Thanks for the details.
The condition appears to be candidiasis.
You need to take tab.fluconazole 150 mg stat and one tab of fluconazole 150 mg after 1 week.Also you should apply nystatin oral paint over tongue and clotrimazole cream over the urethra.This should take care of infection.Using clorhexidine mouth wash 2-3 times a day will also helps.
Hope this helps.
I will be available for follow up.
