Our expert says:
WT, it might be that you have oral thrush. People with HIV may get oral thrush, but oral thrush is not a sign of HIV. Why don’t you stop brushing your tongue? It really isn’t necessary and it sounds like it’s just causing problems. Good luck.
PS I wrote something a while ago on tongue changes and if you’re interested in a copy, you can mail me at CyberDoc@mweb.co.za.
