Hi Selli,

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

In infants, white patches in the oral cavity (including in the inner cheek wall), are often caused by accumulated food or drink. If your baby is less than 6 months old, and still consumes exclusive breast milk, it could be, these white spots appear due to clotting of breast milk.

In addition, white patches on the inner cheek wall in infants can also arise due to other causes, such as fungal infections or other microorganisms in the oral cavity, geographic tongue (often experienced by babies suffering from psoriasis), lichen planus (autoimmune disorders), and so on .

What needs to be clarified at this time, besides white spots, are there any other complaints that your baby has, such as fever, lazy feeding, coughing, runny nose, redness of the throat, vomiting, and so on? How long have you observed complaints like this happening to your baby? Is there a history of certain diseases that he has experienced?

To be clear, if the condition affecting your baby is still relatively mild or dangerous, you should check your baby directly to the doctor or pediatrician to be re-evaluated more deeply. Usually, just by looking directly at the complaint, the doctor is able to provide the best management, for example enough by observation, administration of drugs, and so on.

Now, you don't need to panic too much. Be diligent about breastfeeding your baby with exclusive breastfeeding to increase his endurance to avoid the risk of disease and infection. Always clean the oral cavity, especially when finished bathing and after feeding, using a special washcloth or clean gauze cloth soaked with clean water, then rubbed into the oral cavity, inner cheek wall, tongue, and also the baby's gums. It is not recommended to give any medicine to the baby without direct advice from a doctor.

Hope this helps ...
