If you can see creamy yellow, slightly raised patches
inside your child's mouth that don't go away if you try to
wipe them off, your child most definitely has thrush. It is
not a serious infection and responds quite quickly to
medicines. Sometimes, thrush may appear around the anus as
well and should not be mistaken for nappy rash.
If your child has thrush, he will not want to eat very much
so give him something easy to eat like soup.
In small babies, thrush could be aggravated by improperly
sterilised teats so ensure that you sterilise all teats
very well. If you are breastfeeding, pay particular
attention to breast hygiene as your sucking baby could pass
thrush to you.
