Thrush is caused by the infection of Candida albicans, which is a white plaque on the surface of skin and mucous membrane. Thrush often occurs in newborn infants. Generally speaking, thrush is easy to occur when infants are malnourished, have low body resistance, suffer from oral diseases, or long-term use of antibiotics or hormones. In addition, thrush and milk block are easy to be confused by new mothers. After the baby finishes drinking milk, because the mouth is not cleaned in time, the milk left in the mouth will travel through the milk block, which looks very similar to thrush.
The identification method is very simple. Take a sterilized cotton swab and wipe it. If it’s easy to wipe off, it’s the milk block. Don’t worry. If it’s not easy to wipe off, even if it’s wiped off, you’ll see a red block. It’s thrush, which should be paid attention to by Baoma. If it’s not treated in time, it’s very harmful.
