Hi folks! I've noticed in the past that a lot of people out there were concerned about having oral thrush after seeing a white coating on the tongue!

After checking out the symptoms on, here's what you should be experiencing if you have it:

1. Painful swollen tongue
2. Bleeding sores
3. Thick (i stress the word thick) coating on tongue, like cottage cheese

These are the biggest signs! And you know what else? Oral Thrush does not kick in until LATE into the infection! If I'm not mistaken, I think full blown AIDS has to occur, but I could be wrong! Hope this helps!
