Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query.
Noted the history and understood your concerns.
Thrush is a fungal infection hence one of the reasons for white coating and other reasons can be coated furred tongue, coating due to milk and milk products, geographic tongue and so on.
For this to be confirmed, you may please send clear and focused photos as these sometimes help for on-the-spot diagnosis.
Also required is proper clinical evaluation by an ENT or Oral Surgeon to know the exact condition and to conducts the tests for any immunodeficiency like diabetes, steroid consumption and the tests as may be indicated.
Another way to confirm is lab tests of the scrapping.
Thus the most probable causative agent can be found out and treated accordingly.
