Hello doctor,

I am experiencing a dry mouth and white spots on my tongue. Could you please suggest me a medication?



Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern.

The dryness of your tongue could be due to a deficiency of vitamins, or it could just be dehydration. Sometimes variations in blood sugar can also cause dryness of the tongue. If you are not drinking sufficient water, I suggest that you drink at least two to three liters of water daily. White patches on the tongue could be an indication of a fungal infection or decreased immunity. It is difficult to diagnose your condition based on this description without directly looking at it. You need a proper clinical examination by a physician. I suggest you visit a doctor in your locality to understand the cause of your problem and get the appropriate treatment. It will be better to diagnose your condition with a clinical examination.

I hope this will help you.

Thank you.
