My Baby Is Teething And Rubbing His Tongue A Lot Could This Be Thrush
Will rubbing a pee-soaked diaper on an infant's face and/or tongue cure him of thrush and baby acne?
Not advisable: There is much folklore surrounding the use of urine as a cure-all, but little evidence of any benefit. Urine should be sterile and not cause disease, but there are much better treatments for both oral thrush and acne. Baby acne does not need treatment and will go away on its own. Benzoyl peroxide is far more effective for treatment of adult acne. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I get thrush on my tongue if i haven't brushed my teeth yet or if i haven't eaten in while.My mom says i was born with it.What is it and can I fix it?
Tongue health: The skin on the tongue surface will turn grayish white as it ages & normal feeding activity tends to strip off the older cells & leave pinkish red new cells behind. Some foods will leave a whitish appearance when particles are trapped within the many tongue recesses & are often mistaken for thrush. If you have no sx other than a pale tongue, ignore it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Will swishing around oral thrush nystatin on my tongue kill the bacteria on my teeth enamel as well?bacteria is erode my silver fillings make sick
Misinformation: The internet is full of misinformation about silver fillings. If they wear away they do NOT cause bodily harm. Bacteria will not erode fillings. Mouthwash will not erode fillings. Thrush is caused by the Candida fungus (yeast), not by bacteria. Nystatin will not clean your teeth or remove the bacteria that causes tooth decay or gum disease. Please see your Dentist for evaluation. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

How would you know if baby has an oral thrush? Mine, always sticking his tongue out ? Could that be a sign.? Im just scared he got thrush.
Oral thrush?: Thrush is common in infants and occurs because the immune system needs to mature. On examination, the baby will have white plaque like lesions on the inner cheeks, roof of mouth, or on gums. The whitish material isn't easy to remove with a wet cloth. If you are breastfeeding, the infection can transfer to the mother's breast causing a tingling feeling or discomfort. Seek medical attention. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
10 month old baby boy has white coated tongue (not spots) and bad breath. From what I read, probably not thrush, what else could it be?
Could Be Thrush: Frequently, thrush has a white coating over the tongue and if you wipe the tongue gently with a gauze, the classic red "spots" will show up. Either way, you need to have your son evaluated to determine what is causing this. Either a dentist or pediatrician can help you. ...Read more
