Hi Andrex! I think if you have the white tongue it is more likely candida. We thought it was candida with my son becuase he took Antibiotics which can cause candida - but he didnt have a white tongue. He did the no sugar/dairly/glute for months with no change. Eventually we decided it was probably not candida because he doesnt have any other symptoms other than the lip peeling. But if your tongue is coated white I think that is a candida symptom and you should look into that definitely!
