White coated tongue, reoccurring red spots. HIV negative. What could this mean?

20 year old male with white coated tongue and reoccurring red spots. I have had this since the end of January and I can t seem to figure what it is from. My doctor said it wasn t thrush and that it was normal, however it just seems out of the normal. I am just concerned of HIV . I was tested negative April 22nd. I haven t had any unprotected sex. What could this mean? My tongue is extremely white and I can scratch the stuff off. The red spots look like burns but I haven t burnt my tongue at all. It always occurs in the same two places. On the right side and the left side of the tongue. The white coating is way more prominent towards the back of my tongue. Any idea what this could be?

I have read your problem. I thing it is because of poor oral hygiene. Ideal oral hygiene rule is to do brushing twice a day (morning and night) ,use antiseptic mouthwash once a day and clean your tongue with tongue cleaner twice a day when you are brushing. So think over it how frequently you are following this rule. Donot think about bad diseases , Start b-complex for one month along with good antiseptic mouth wash.
ALL the best.
