In brief: Thrush

This very well maybe a fungal infection of the mucosal, inner, surface of his lip.
This can be treated with antifungal medications prescirbed by your doctor.

In brief: Thrush!

It's a fungal infection usually because of antibiotic use or inhaled/nebulized steroid use.
If your toddler is still attached to his pacifier...Then there goes the culprit! have your pediatrician check it out.
