Thanks for the query.
It seems that you may be having some oral thrush due to recent antibiotic course.
I would advise you to apply either miconazole gel or nystatin drops locally.
Take some vitamin and probiotic.
Drink plenty of water.
Do scrape your tongue after brushing your teeth,as this will help in clearing the tongue.
You shall be all right in next 4 to 5 days.
