In brief: Use oral Nystatin

Thrush is yeast overgrowth in the mouth, causing whitish spots or patches inside the cheeks, on the tongue, or on the throat.
The spots don't wipe off with a towel. Thrush is seen in many babies, at one time or another. If a doctor confirms that a baby has thrush, he will usually prescribe a liquid medicine called nystatin, to put in the baby's mouth 4 times a day to stop the yeast overgrowth.

In brief: Antifungal Medicine

Thrush is a common yeast infection in the mouth of young children, especially if they have recently been on antibiotics.
It appears as a thick white exudate on the inside of the lips and cheeks, and sometimes on the back of the throat. Treatments include nystatin, Fluconazole and sometimes gentian violet.
