Hello Didi,


Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.


Before I answer your question, I will make sure first, whether the white spots experienced by your child are really mushrooms or only the remaining milk. In general, babies will experience white spots on the mouth, this is caused by the remaining milk or milk consumed and leaves some milk on the tongue and in some parts of the oral cavity. To distinguish that the spots are due to milk or fungus, it can be done periodically cleaning, if the spots sometimes disappear and appear it can be caused by the remaining milk, but if the white spots remain then it can be caused by fungus.


The fungus in the baby's mouth arises due to poor oral hygiene, and the baby's immune system is still low. In general, if there is a fungus that is still sweat, it will heal by itself, but it cannot be ignored. Need monitoring, if the complaint does not improve, then need treatment using anti-fungal ointment.


There are several tips that can be done to reduce symptoms, including:

maintain baby's oral hygiene
clean it regularly with baby toys
sterilize baby bottles

May be useful. Always Healthy 😊
