I want to ask that the white patches on my baby’s cheeks are getting more and more, if I clean my baby I cry, so why don’t I try to silence it. but why so many? is that dangerous?

Hi,


The more white patches can be caused by a fungal infection in the oral cavity. Symptoms include white patches on the oral cavity, which cannot be peeled off easily.


Babies have a higher risk of getting fungal infections (oral thrush), because the immune system is not yet fully developed. In addition, babies who receive antibiotic treatment can also reduce the number of bacteria in the oral cavity, and consequently the levels of fungi (fungus) increase.


It is better to keep the baby's oral cavity clean. Wash clean eating utensils and toys that can be put in the baby's mouth. Sterilize baby bottles or feeding utensils. Wash hands after changing baby's diaper.


If it is caused by a fungal infection, then antifungal treatment can be given, such as those containing miconazole or nystatin.


It is recommended to check your baby's condition to the doctor. So that it can be done directly on the white spots that arise, and immediately given the right type and dose of treatment.
