If thrush does not do any treatment, long-term existence, it may affect the esophagus. It’s like a disease in one part infects another. Thrush is caused by a fungal infection called Candida albicans, which is contagious. In serious cases, thrush can even spread to the lungs, causing serious consequences. So we can’t simply think that thrush only occurs in the oral cavity. We think that the oral problems are not serious. We should consider the spread of thrush.
Because thrush is infectious, and the mother’s vagina is also vulnerable to infection, if pregnant with Streptococcus should be treated in time, otherwise in childbirth is very easy to infect the child. If it has been found that the child has been infected, it needs to be dealt with in time.
Children under two years old are the common infected population of thrush. When the mother feeds the baby’s breast milk, she should first clean the nipple to prevent infection with Streptococcus albicans. Children play with toys, contact with things should be cleaned often, to the sun for a while.
There are also streptococci in the mouth of normal children. Only when the number of this fungus is out of balance will it be replaced by thrush, which can spread from the mouth to the tonsil, then to the esophagus, and even to the lungs. Therefore, any disease, unrelated to its benign and malignant, should be diagnosed and treated in time.
Thrush is infectious and should be treated in time, and can spread to the esophagus and lungs, causing serious consequences. For children with low immunity, they should take rest to prevent infection.
