Hi there.
Both lack of hygeine coupled with the various medications you are using are most likely incimminants. i do hope your power situation improves soon & you can use a tongue cleaner et al & rinse with an antibacterial mouth wash. According to the rules in your region (you may require a prescription) a single (one-time) dose of fluconazole 200mg may help your situation & rid you of any fungal infection.
It is not a major worry issue & will be easily remedied! Relax & wish you continued good health ! Cheers!
