Antibiotics taken, white and thick tongue, sour taste. Thrush?

I recently took 2 very old-fashioned oral antibiotics to treat what ended up not being std s. I also had a dentist cleaning appointment the day I stopped taking the meds. Since then my tongue is very white, thick and not normal looking. I also get a sour taste in my mouth after I eat anything but more so when I eat dairy. Is this thrush or something else?

Hello, u had guessed it right, it could be oral thrush.. which might be due to overdosage of the antibiotics or decreased immunity, or it can be part of any other white lesion of oral mucosa.. which includes nicotinic stomatiis, allergic stomatitis, etc..
clinical examination and brush/exfoliative biopsy will confirm the lesion.. consult an oral medicine and diagnosis specialist for same..
meanwhile keep your tongue clean daily.. do warm saline gargles.. maintain oral hygiene..
take care
