Dysgeusia

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to Healthcare Magic and thanks for putting up the query.
Bad taste in the mouth can be due to dental caries or oral infection or throat infection or indigestion and regurgitation.
As you have mentioned that you develop a white film on the tongue, it is probably an oral infection.
Please send me the picture of your oral cavity.
Also tell me do you have any history of tobacco use or smoking?
Any history of sinusitis?
Any history of reflux disease or acidity?
Follow up with the required information so that I can suggest you better.
Take care
Thanks and regards
