I have experienced some strange issues and would like some insight. I saw my GP and he acknowledged the dry mouth symptoms. He indicated that I should try sour candy / drinks and a warm compress to get saliva glands flowing. It has not worked.
What do you think this is and I should do as a next step? Is this an infection, thrush or something else?
1. Whitish coated tongue, especially when waking up the morning. Dry mouth feeling.
2. Coating seems to scrape off, but reappears.
3. A more visible coating is on the back of the tongue (image attached).
2. Thinker, bubbly saliva in the mouth.
3. Loss of taste at times, in the past it has been difficult to eat due to lack of saliva (seems to have somewhat resolved).
4. I noticed small bumps on floor of mouth, not sure if related or these are blocked saliva glands or related. Dr. did not seemed concerned. (image attached).
I brush, floss, and use mouthwash regularly. I don't believe this is a hygiene issue. I am not on antibiotics; however, I was provided a nasal spray for congestion. These symptoms started before using the nasal spray. I do have some anxiety and am not sure if it is related as I have read that stress can cause dry mouth.
Your input is appreciated and welcome.
