Update: 2024-02-22


Tongue discolorations can drive people mad. Some will go to great lengths in trying to remove whatever film, funk, gunk, is on their tongue, and they’ll live in fear of someone seeing into their mouth and judging them for not having good hygiene. The younger a person is that is experiencing a tongue film or discoloration, the more aggressive in the action of trying to rid it or remove it. This may include attempts to brush their tongue with a tooth brush or scrub the tongue with a tooth brush, wipe the tongue with a paper towel, wipe the tongue with a wash cloth, rinse their tongue with mouth washes and mouth rinses, swish water constantly around in their mouth, rub their tongue with their fingers, scrape their tongue with some sort of tool or just try to gargle with salt water, leaving many people with sore or even injured tongues because people do not like having anything on their tongues.
