Jakarta – Mother, oral infections are common in children, yes. One of them is canker sores in the form of white or yellow velvety patches in the mouth.
Thrush is caused by a type of fungus called Candida. This fungus is actually found naturally on the skin and in the mouth, but if it grows out of control, it can cause canker sores. Thrush is not a serious problem for children, but it should not be underestimated, Mother because it can develop into a more serious infection.
Even not only children, thrush can also be experienced by newborns, you know Mother. How come yes, and how to deal with thrush in children? Check out the explanation.
Dr. Pangonis, Pediatrician from di Akron Children’s Medical CenterCanada, via Healthychildren explains: “One of the reasons newborns can get Candida infections is from their mothers. This can happen while they are still in the womb, but also as they pass through the vagina during delivery. Most of these infections are caused by Candida albicansalthough other Candida species are becoming more common.”
