Is it oral thrush or geographic tongue or cancer kind??

Well both side of my tongue started to become plain around a year ago....the top surface started to become more debris attracting kind....it gets dirty after every meal I have and looks like a coating...In the morning I brush my tongue lightly and then its gone.I don't need to scrap them off.As I said both side of my tongue started to become plain with irregular patches that comes and goes....but since past two months its remaining plain on two side and front.There are also couple of small ring like formation on top and underneath or two sides.I visited my dentist 4 months ago and he just prescribed me antibiotics that didn't help much.I don't feel any irritation or burning though while eating anything.Just sometimes it bleeds little bit at back while I try to scrap.I think at the bak of my tongue those glands or something are feeling bigger to me also.I had Tuberculosis in 2015 and dengue fever in 2017 and had a blood transfusion during TB.Tb got cured...also did a hiv test in 2018 (it was -ve) as I was afraid from that blood transfusion.Not any kind of sexual relationship ever.Sit most of the time at home studying and do very little exercise.I am 23 now and 62 kg of weight.I am going to visit my dentist next week.Please have a look on IMAGES i have added in my profile if they help you in any way.i dont know if its oral thrush or cancer or whatever...now i am again scared of hiv also ,though it was negative and thinking what if they didn't do the test properly.please help.

If you haven't had any kind of sexual relationship ever, it can't be HIV. It doesn't matter how they did the test - you have no risk for it, so you didn't need to test. I'm surprised anyone tested you for it.

I don't know if it's the lighting, or the photos were taken on different days, but in some you look like you have ulcers on your tongue, and others it looks like it may be thrush.

I think you need to show your doctor all these pics, and let them decide, since it looks so different in one pic to the next.

In the meantime, drink plenty of water and ease up on any acidic foods you might be eating.
