White Baby’s Mouth?
Good night, want to ask about the mouth of a white baby like peeling and like a mouth sores, oh yeah for an 8 day old baby
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Your baby's white mouth is like sprue canker, most likely is a normal condition. The white spots are lumps of breast milk left in the oral cavity. You don't need to worry about this.
If your baby is born healthy, which is marked by your baby does not need care in the perina room (special room for babies who experience problems during childbirth), where your baby is immediately taken to the baby's special care room for a while which is then immediately treated with his mother. In babies like this you don't need to clean the baby's mouth on the gauze regularly. Just clean if you see white spots attached. Clean it with sterile gauze soaked in physiological sterile liquid that you can buy at a pharmacy.
However, if your baby has a poor birth history, so that he or she experiences treatment in the perina room or specifically for newborn babies, then you should take your baby in consultation with your pediatrician. In order to be able to do special inspection and management. Suspected white spots are fungal growth. Especially if the child has a history of a tube inserted into the airway. This increases the risk of children experiencing fungal infections or oral candidiasis.
Thus hopefully useful.
