I have a white coating on my tounge and I have brought a tounge scraper but i cant get to the very far back and it doesnt clear up the white stuff for good, which is what I want. Is there anything I can do ,preferably any home remidies?

Is it covering your tongue? Does it look 'furry/hairy'? Or does it look blotchy and on some of your cheek?

If it is only on your tongue, then it is likely just dead cells, which a tongue scraper should work. So I would suggest seeing a doctor.

However, if it is blotchy and on parts of your cheek(s) then it is likely "Thrush" which is a yeast infection of the mouth and will need to see a doctor for some oral ointment.

If it is fuzzy, then it could just be from not brushing your teeth (including tongue, roof of mouth, and cheeks) enough. Try to brush your teeth at least twice a day, and use mouthwash at least once a day. It should help clear it up within a couple days. If not, see a doctor.

There are several other things it could be, but since you only said those symptoms, I would see if it is any of the three above.

Well, there isn't much else you can try that I can think of. I would suggest seeing a doctor. You don't have to accept any treatment or meds and can ask some things you could do at home.
