Couldn't find what you looking for?


My mom is 68 and shes noticing a black tonque any ideas what this could be.


Hi there. Haven't you look up for the black tongue (symptoms or treatment) options? Look, when it comes to the black tongue, it is usually the result of some bacteria that is a buildup or even trapped on your tongue. That is the first option.

It is more likely that some fibers in your foods keep the papillae short and bacteria - free but sometimes it can happen that this papilla can grow and it can cause black tongue. Maybe this is the situation in your mother's case as well. 

One thing as well - does she using Pepto-Bismol? because this can cause black tongue as well, but there is nothing to be worried about.
