How to remove the greenish substance on tongue?

User Level:
Posted by: tworainbows  (10 years ago)
Hello everyone!

I noticed lately that everytime I wake, there is a dark green substance on my tongue. It smells horrible. I tried scraping it off but it can't be removed. I brushed my tongue with my toothbrush and used mouthwash but the taste and the smell won't go away. How can I get rid of it? Please help.

Thank you very much in advance for any tips or information you can give me.

It sounds like an infection to me. It could be in your mouth or somewhere in your body. You should go to the doctor and get it checked out.

Hi there!

Brush your teeth more and get a good tongue scraper. Use antibacterial mouthwash as well. If it remains see a dentist.
