since 4 mnths i have a white tongue and a very heavy cough and chest pain, i went to the doctor who treated me from allergic and the cough gone, but the white tongue still there, so the doctor said its fugus and give me an oral gel to use on it and swallow, my tongue get better less white, but it still there.

and i also started to have heartburn, almost daily.
i went to another doctor, specialist in degestive, who said that the white tongue may be from the heartburn? so now i am taking medicen for the heartburn, but my tongue is not changing.

Any idea if heartburn and white tongue are related.
