Tongue becomes really white/yellow overnight. Watch

    So every single night, I go to sleep. Every morning I'm welcomed by a really yellow and white tongue and my breath is also very bad. I've been taking care of it by using a tongue scraper (Orabrush), it gets rid of the bad breath and the colour returns to a somewhat pink mixed with bits of white. It then returns every single morning.

    Is there a permanent fix for this?!

    Maybe you've got oral thrush. Google it, see if it matches your symptoms then get an anti fungal mouthwash on it or see your GP

    The symptoms don't match, so it can't be that.

    I eat a lot of chicken but I have a mixture of different foods. I also have quite a bit of eggs.

    I would definitely not discount a mild oral thrush as this is the most common cause of a coated tongue. Other symptoms are present in more severe cases which is unlikely if you are regularly scraping your tongue. The coating can also be caused by antibiotics or dehydration.

    Definitely worth a trip to the GP or even your dentist at your next visit if it's bothering you a lot, they can take swabs and get a definite answer for you.
