The burning tongue sensation and white yeast coating on my tongue were the first signs that i had something. My dentis just said it was geographic tongue. It got worse and burned so bad i was crying and unable to eat anything at all which left me completely weak. He then prescribed clotrimazole 10 mg tablets for me to suck on which are antifungal medicine. This along with rinsing my mouth with equal parts of hydrogenperoxide and water helped my burning tongue subside. However If you do have candida, it seems as though a diet which is described in this website is essential to get rid of this condition. I am just starting diet and very frustrated to give up morning coffee and night glass of wine not to mention starchy veges. Good Luck and I hope you are better soon.
