My baby is 21 months and has a couple of little white spots on the end of his tongue.  Are they ulcers or sores of some kind?

At 21 months, he is old to have thrush, unless he was recently on an antibiotic. Some viral infections may cause similar lesions.

Not certain: This could be so many different things. This could be an allergy to things like spices, tartar-control ingredients in toothpaste, cinnamon, etc. It could also be the sign of a vitamin deficiency or other systemic conditions. I'd try to see if they are sore or worsen after eating spicy foods or after certain toothpastes/mouthwashes. It may be a good idea to have your dentist or family doc look. ...Read more

A rash on the neck, face, and chest along with the middle ear fluid sounds like a viral infection or most likely an allergic problem. See you primary care doctor for an evaluation. ...Read more
