What causes white spots on my tongue other than strep throat?

White spots can be caused by both strep throat and tonsillitis, but not usually on your tongue. There are also certain medications that can cause white spots - although I'm not sure which ones. Cancer can also cause white spots on your tongue - but only mouth or throat cancers, and there would be many other signs of that besides just the spots. So, tonsillitis would be your best bet.
