what causes your toung to be black


Black tongue can be caused by many things.

But it is more likely that it is caused by a growth of yeast or bacteria in your oral areas, in your mouth. It can happen because of so many things. Also, this round thing on your tongue are known as the papillae and they can build up things like bacteria or yeast. It can be scary and sure - it doesn't look so good.

You probably do know that those papillae are usually a white to pinkish color. But, they can change. That means that whatever you eat or drink can make them appear in a different color.
