Reasons for a Discoloured Tongue

Key takeaways: – Apart from color, symptoms include fever, dehydration and, in the case of oral thrush, white patches and a burning sensation. – Causes can include tobacco, scarlet fever, diabetes, chemotherapy and antibiotics treatment. – Those who do not look after their teeth properly can also have a black tongue since the cells do not shed normally. “A red tongue may be indicative of a vitamin B-12 deficiency or even a folic acid deficiency.” Read the full story here https://yourdentalhealthresource.com/tongue-discoloration-symptoms-causes-and-treatments/]]>
