Posted by: worried
i have had a problem with dry mouth and white tongue for over two years at first i thought it might be thrush but have tried every treatment possible fluzol fo 30 days twice and nystatin, it all started after a bout of pityriasis rosea, i had bruising in the mouth for about a day and then my tongue turned white and my mouth became dry any idea what could be the cause, i am a smoker and also find it gets worse with stress and alcohol intake
