Brief Answer:
oral thrush.

Detailed Answer:
Usually the white tongue will be due to oral thrush or raised papilla due to vitamin deficiency, I would suggest you to take TAB. A-Z one tablet for 15 days and METROGYL DG gEL for local application 3 times a day.

If still it persist I suggest you to get examined by ENT specialist to rule out oral thrush.

Take care.
