Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Thrush in children can be many possible causes, such as irritation due to the use of certain toothpaste, excessive sensitivity to certain types of food or drinks, lack of certain vitamins and minerals, fungal or bacterial infections, to other more serious conditions, such as celiac disease, Crohn's disease , Behcet's disease, autoimmune disorders, and also HIV. Minor trauma, such as being bitten, brushing your teeth too hard, or getting pricked by food thorns can also cause canker sores.
Because the causes are very varied, the handling of canker sores can be done differently. The drug you mentioned is a type of anti-fungal medication that is only appropriate given if canker sores that your child is experiencing are associated with fungal infections. If not, surely the handling will be different again.
Therefore, you should not carelessly give medicines to your child based only on the advice of friends. Check your child first with an expert, a doctor or pediatrician so that his condition can be treated with proper treatment. At home, the following natural steps you can take:
Diligently brush your child's teeth with a soft toothbrush and bristles, also use special children's toothpaste
Avoid giving children foods that are too sour, spicy
When canker sores have not healed, limit also the provision of chocolate, strawberries, eggs, nuts, and cheese
Give children food that is rich in vitamin B12, folic acid, zinc, iron, and also vitamin C
Teach children to rinse their mouth with salt solution to improve the cleanliness of their oral cavity
Also give your child milk so that his endurance is maintained
Hope this helps ...
