It looks as if you are having fungal infection on tongue try Candid ointment. It should hopefully improve. Sometimes you also get food deposits on tongue so you can use tongue scrapper also for this , but all this you have to do under medical supervision. Consult with an oral pathologist near you.

White coating could be unclean tongue or fungal infection. Pic attached is not of very much help as it is blurred so it smoothens the borders.
Next Steps
Kindly attach another pic and let me know if you can scrape it off with your brush... Is fever mild or completely gone
