    The symptoms are characteristic of strep, the beginnings of scarlet, what looks like the “strawberry tongue” is a dead giveaway. Although from the white coating on the tongue looks like candidiasis, the symptoms indicate strep, there would be no fever or body aches with pain, candidiasis of the tongue-only sein.Eine rapid Gram stain or strep test confirms this Dx. Penicillin, amoxicillin, cephalexin, or among the most common treatments for strep, along with moisture.

Since it is a type of yeast infection that should be treated, as they spread to other parts of the body or other people as quickly as possible.
