Has anyone developed a hairy tongue from their medications that they just couldn't shake? I got it maybe a year ago, a mild case, but every time I was put on antibiotics, it has gotten worse. I've been treated with diflucan twice now for it, but it doesn't help. Right now, I just finished 3 different antibiotics, plus I'm on remicade and 2 steroids, so I guess maybe my body just can't kick the infection? I brush at least twice a day and brush and scrape my tongue, but the hair comes right back. Some are so long right now, they're hanging in my throat and giving me a constant, uncomfortable tickle. If you have had this before, how did you finally get rid of it??
