White Spots Such As Thrush Between Tonsils?
My son is 22 months old from hai friday fever but has not been found out if there are white spots like thrush, right on Saturday I began to see when swallowing he was very difficult .. after I opened his mouth it turned out that the end cavity is the right and left wall between the tonsils (not the tonsil) a lot of white like we can thrush. Last Sunday did not bring it to the general practitioner, who was asked was your child already DPT? Up to 2 times they asked me this, but the doctor did not say what was sick .. only given ibuprofen, antibik and anastyn. Until today what looks like thrush they will be relieved, and my child is still rather difficult to swallow. What is that? And what should the treatment be?
Hello Eni, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
Some of the causes of your child's complaints include:
Tonsillitis (inflammation of the tonsils)
Fungal infections of the mouth
Respiratory tract infections (flu)
Other infections of the oral cavity
Fever can indicate an infection in the body that can be caused by viruses, diphtheria, fungi, or bacteria. White spots in the mouth can be caused by detritus (due to bacterial infection of tonsillitis), canker sores, fungal infections, or diphtheria infections.
It is better to find out the exact cause of your child's complaints indeed but you should consult with your doctor or pediatrician, because it requires further information, direct physical examination, blood tests, and other examinations.
Mothers can also pay attention to the following danger signs, so you should immediately visit the nearest health facility:
• Signs of dehydration such as crying children do not shed tears, urine becomes dark or becomes reduced
• High fever
• Shortness of breath and difficulty speaking
• Sleep snoring or snoring
• The child suddenly spasms or becomes weak or unconscious
Some things you can do for your child:
• Get plenty of rest and sleep
• Consume nutritious food and drink enough water to prevent dehydration
• Take medications according to the dosage and recommendations from your doctor. Do not forget to spend the antibiotics that have been given.
Hopefully this information can be useful for you. Thank you
