Hello,

Thick white patches over the tongue can be due to yeast infection of tongue leading to oral thrush. So my suggestion is to consult an oral physician and get evaluated. A clinical examination and microscopy of the scraping from the tongue can help in confirmation of the cause. If it is a fungal infection, you can be advised a course of antifungal medication like Fluconazole for fifteen days. Along with it gargle with a specialized mouthwash like Nystatin and suck Clotrimazole lozenges. Drink plenty of water.



Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Honey Arora
