Thrush In Infants That Never Heal?
Good afternoon. My baby is 2 months over 15 days … my baby drinks milk because my breast milk does not come out much, and now my mouth sores are on the mouth wall, it has not been healed for 3 weeks, even though I was given medicine from the midwife, I guess “no danger? And how to overcome it how? thank you
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Thrush in infants can occur due to various things, including:
Viral, bacterial and fungal infections Lack of certain vitamins and minerals Lack of fluid intake Food allergies And can also be due to certain diseases, such as intestinal inflammation and celiac disease. Normally, thrush in infants should be able to improve by itself in 7-10 days. So that in your case with thrush has lasted for 3 weeks, you should do further tests to the pediatrician. This is important because it needs to be seen if there are other clues that can be used to narrow down the possibilities, such as fever or not, how to gain weight, its development, and various other symptoms. Thus, the best treatment can be determined.
Meanwhile, efforts to deal with canker sores that can be done for babies under 6 months are actually not much, only in the form of compressing canker sores with ice cubes to reduce the pain. Therefore it is important to immediately take your child to the pediatrician. Bring the medicine that you get from the midwife, so that you can evaluate whether the choice of medicine is right or not. So, hopefully answering your question.
