Hi, the tongue may turn whitish yellow in case of viral or fungal infections of the mouth or systemic viral infections also.Please go for a complete oral and medical check up. You may also have a condition called Geographic Tongue. A specific diagnosis can only be given on complete examination and investigations. Take care!
