Arijit Question by Arijit on Jun 25, 2024Hindi

My mouth smells. My tongue is covered by a white coating. I consulted a dentist. He prescribed a mouthwash. But the problem remains. Please help

Ans: Hi Arijit
A white coating on the tongue is usually caused by food debris, dead cells or bacteria. It can look scary but it usually isn't. Please use a soft brush or tongue scraper to clean the tongue and it should be good in a few days.
Bad breath or "halitosis" can have many causes such as decayed teeth, infected gums or even respiratory or gastrointestinal infections. A mouthwash can give only limited and transient relief. Please consult a better qualified dentist, or an ENT surgeon who should be able to identify the cause and find a permanent solution
