Thanks for the query.

With the very limited information posted, I feel that you don't need urgent medical attention . If the white coating is persisting after brush, adherent, bleeding to touch etc, then you should XXXXXXX a doctor. There could be a remote possibility of candida infection.

However, you can wait and watch and look for the symptoms that I suggested.

I hope that I have answered your query

In case you have further query, please get back to me

Best wishes
