Weird bumps on back of tongue white film

Posted , 26 users are following.


I was treated for possible thrush months ago but doctor advised me to stop nystatin because of possible allergic reaction. still have a white film on tongue and tongue almost seems fuzzy. when I brush those things pop up and I've had the bumps on the back on my tongue constantly and also have a small tiny slightly raised smooth bump on hard palate. no idea if it's always been there or I'm just noticing it. is this normal? I went to get fillings last week and the dentist did not mention anything

      I feel like i'm looking inside of my own mouth! I'm wondering did you or anybody else whose tongue looks similar ever had Covid? I had Covid in November of 2020 & afterwards it seems like my mouth changed! I've always had bumps at the back of my tongue but they are so much larger now & I have a constant white film on my tongue along with the inflamed taste buds at the tip of my tongue. It's not thrush, I hadve no idea what it is & I can't get rid of it.

    i would check for a ureaplasma infection gentitally. it is possible that you could have caught it through oral sex. i dont believe there is an oral test for ureaplasma but i would suggest looking into it. it is not normal looking. my mouth is similar to yours and it came about after having oral sex tested genitally for ureaplasma and positive.

    Hey there!

    I had a very bad case of oral thrush that unfortunately was not caught by the doctors before it spread to the esophagus & I couldn't swallow regular food for 4 weeks (weighed 98 pounds) - so definitely run back to get a prescription and insist on it. I personally caught it right before it started to get into the nervous system I think (don't ask me why doctors didn't identify it early on and I had to do that myself & then they confirmed it with a throat culture. Seems pretty easy to identify from just a physical exam if it's in the tongue - mine was in tongue, throat, esophagus). It wasn't until I looked in the mirror & noticed a super white tongue. So my thrush was pretty resistant to all of the medications I tried, with the exception of one: Itracanazole. Since I've stopped taking itracanazole, I think it's coming back into my throat as of today. I was completely recovered on itracanazole though and had a normal diet, so I am trying to see if there is a way I can take this medication long term.

    The "fuzzy" feeling you have is definitely thrush. Hopefully you've gotten it treated since your post! I have no idea what causes mine - don't have any of the predisposing factors as far as I know.
