Dear Saneler, hello.
White tongue is mainly due to fungal infection on the tongue. other probable causes are:-
1. Poor oral hygeine
2. Diabetes
3. Dehydration
4. Smoking
5. Breathing from mouth as in some sinus problem
6. Smoking
7. Some antibiotics
8. Inhalers used for asthma treatment mainly those containing steroids.

You can judge and can take prevention accordingly. You can investigate any infection of tongue by taking a srapping from your tongue, by an expert.
For your breathing problem have an Chest X Ray done.

Hope I am able to help in your query. Thanks.
