Causes Of White Spots On The Baby’s Tongue After Immunization?
Good morning, thanks for the question
Oral thrush occurs due to fungal infections in the mouth and tongue. This condition is also referred to as oral candidiasis. Candida albicans is an organism that causes oral thrush. Normally the fungus is present in very small amounts so that it is not harmful. However, if overgrowth will cause infection. Oral thrush is commonly experienced by infants and toddlers which is characterized by the presence of a white coating on the tongue, inner cheeks, and around the baby's mouth. The white coating on a baby's tongue that can be easily cleaned might only be caused by leftover milk. Oral thrush is not related to immunizations previously given to babies.
Candida fungal infections can make babies fussy and lazy to receive drinks or food. But in general this disease is mild and can be treated thoroughly.
Treatment after diagnosis of candida infection is confirmed by doctors including the administration of antifungal gels or suspension used topically in the baby's mouth or tongue. Generally after a week of reduced therapy complaints. However, oral thrush can be recurrent if the immune system is down.
To prevent the recurrence of similar incidents, you should do the following:
- Take care of the baby's oral hygiene
- Keep the baby's toys and environment clean
- Always wash your hands
Carry out further consultations with your doctor for a physical examination, diagnosis other than oral thrush based on the results of the examination, and treatment according to the underlying cause.
Sekaian, hopefully can help
