Adults may suffer candidiasis of the mouth cavity as a result of severe somatic diseases, lasting antibiotic treatment, inadequate personal hygiene, or radiation therapy. A characteristic white coat on the tongue gradually forms a thin film.
At first it can be easily removed but in case you postpone treatment of the disease the fur becomes thicker and darker. In case one decides to remove it bleeding ulcers appear.
