EWWWWW GROOSSSSSSSS There's a case study that was just published in the "New England Journal of Medicine" about a 55-year-old woman in Missouri.She went to the hospital after she noticed that she always felt nauseated . . . she had a permanent bad taste in her mouth . . . and, oh yeah, she had a ton of LITTLE BLACK HAIRS growing on her TONGUE.
Tthe doctors knew why it happened. She'd had surgery recently after a serious leg injury, and she developed an infection, so she was on some hardcore antibiotics.And she had a rare reaction to one of them, and developed the black tongue hairs, which is a condition that's officially called lingua villosa nigra. It's more or less harmless, but still.The doctors put her on different antibiotics, and four weeks later, her tongue was back to normal.
