White Spots In Infants Aged 5 Months?
Good morning. I want to ask, bro, I am now 5 months old but in her mouth there are white spots and her lips are also
White spots in a 5 month old baby can be caused due to various causes. From the situation your child is experiencing, the presence of white spots on the mouth and lips may be a normal thing which may be a residue of breast milk. The remaining breast milk can sometimes be imprinted on the oral cavity, so that white spots or spots are visible. This can happen because of the lack of hygiene in the child's mouth area. You can try cleaning the baby's mouth area, by using a clean cloth or sterile gauze moistened with water, then gently inserting the cloth with your fingers to clean the oral cavity. It is important for you to wash your hands first before doing it.
But if the white spots persist then maybe it could be due to other causes such as:
the first sign of measles
Therefore, you can temporarily try to clean the baby's mouth as mentioned above. Keep breastfeeding your child. If indeed the white spots do not disappear, then check your child first to the doctor, so that the doctor can check the condition of your child directly and provide the right therapy.
