I've had a sore throat on and off for a few weeks now, and a couple of days ago noticed my tongue was white and furry, and I have white growth of some sort in the back of my throat and on my tonsils. I've had strep many times, and every time I've had it, its excruciating, so I don't think I have strep throat. Also on the back of my tongue, there is a collection of this stuff in the center.

I've had chronic health problems for over two years that is still undiagnosed, but I've had multiple HIV tests just in case, they're aways negative.

I haven't been on antibiotics for anything in a year, and as I said, no HIV. So why would I have thrush? From what I read about it and saw of it, that's what this looks like, but I am not in a risk group for it - I'm 21, not a heavy smoker , not a heavy caffeine user and rarely drink alcohol. I have also been experiencing major weight loss and appetite loss.
