Thrush, or candidomycosis stomatitis, appears in children in the form of white dots, white plaque, ulcers on the inside of the cheeks, lips, tongue, palate and gums. It must be treated immediately so that it does not spread throughout the oral mucosa and does not take on a more severe form.

It is necessary

  • - baking soda;
  • - "Candide" solution;
  • - other medications prescribed by your doctor.


Step 1

Prepare a baking soda solution

To do this, take a glass of boiled water cooled to room temperature and add 1 teaspoon of baking soda to it. Mix thoroughly. Soak a swab made of sterile bandage or gauze in the solution and wipe the entire mouth of the child. For convenience, you can wrap the bandage around your finger.

If you are breastfeeding, lubricate the nipples with the same solution before and after feeding. Disinfect baby toys, bottles and teats especially thoroughly during treatment.

Step 2

Buy a 1% solution "Candide" at the pharmacy

Give them a course of treatment, the white spots will disappear, but in no case should you stop treatment. Otherwise, thrush in the mouth will appear again.

Step 3

See your pediatrician

Treatment of thrush in children should be supervised by a local doctor. He will prescribe antifungal drugs and, most likely, not only for the child, but also for the mother, since the infection can be transmitted.
