I would like to sample the community here to estimate the prevalence and severity of self-reported white tongue discoloration based on visual inspection. Could you please select the most appropriate choice for yourself from the poll above. I appear to have inflamed filiform papillae with a white discoloration and possible bacterial or fungal colonization. The image below shows white discoloration where individual filiform papillae can be seen towards the edges and larger patches are visible towards the back. The dark color at the back of the tongue is from the poor lighting in the back of the mouth and is not part of the tongue color.
