brown hairy tongue

Jul 6, 1999

My tongue is coated with brown things. It is just like the the "black hairy tongue" images but the color is brown! Ý am brushing, brushing, brushing. But after 24 hours it becomes the old position. When i brush the surface of my tongue , the toothbrush becomes brown! Is this a serious problem ? Thanks !

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Brown tongues can be related to smoking, certain meds, or bacterial overgrowth syndromes. MH
