A non scrapable lesion on tongue is not a common finding. Difficult make a diagnosis just based on this sign. Please visit a dental surgeon or ENT surgeon for a confirm diagnosis and treatment.

Hello, getting the tongue white is not a common problem and there are many causes for that. You can post a clear photograph of your tongue so that we can help. Much better way would be to visit an Oral Medicine specialist for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Hi..There are lot of factors for white tongue and the most common being candidal infection. But a pathology test is recommended before using any antifungal lotion on tongue. My advise is you visit a dentist or a ENT specialist and then only start medicines. Regards
