What causes yellow coating on tongue and burning feeling in eyes?

Posted on Mon, 8 Jun 2015 in Sexually Transmitted Diseases
Question: I had a yellow coat on my tongue now it's white, my eyes kind of burn, had a rash twice but went away on my back, coughing and coughing up phlegm and on the back of my tongue it appears to split but no blood and bumps. My tongue doesn't hurt or no pain, I also feel tired at times. I took a test for std but haven't got the results. What can I expect?

Intercourse bout four weeks ago, partner I heard slept around before I met her, std testing was due to precaution and some symptoms I see I looked up and my aunt was a nurse and told me to get check to be safe as well because sometimes diseases don't appear for weeks after the affected, haven't went thru treatment just got tested results won't be back in till end of week, no other diseases from me, her unsure but hope not, symptoms just started about two weeks ago and the bumps on my the back of my tongue are kind of big and kinda a white tongue and some whiteness in the back of my throat, sometimes my throats sore but not always, and my tongue is kinda yellowish at first but now the yellowish is in the back and whiteness towards the front, I feel tired most the time, and weak, sweat at times, some head aches, and loss of appetite... It said on the web some std rashes can show up and I got what appears to be a rash on my back twice, I'm healthy and I'm not sick, just been the last three weeks started feeling like this and symptoms started to appear...trying to give you as much detail that I can recall now and tell
