Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about these these pink spots that you have reported and all the inconveniences this must have caused you. I have reviewed the information and would like to inspect an image of these spots. This way, I can provide a personalized and helpful response to you. It is totally normally for the tongue to turn white after using hydrogen peroxide to rinse the mouth. For antibiotics, that is going to be very unlikely because am not sure what you have is an infection. However, I will say more after reviewing the image.

I hope to hear from you and promise to respond promptly. Until next, I wish you well.
