Children’s thrush is often caused by Candida albicans infection. Candida albicans is a kind of fungus, and it has strong infectivity. After getting the disease, it will form a kind of white mottling film on the affected mucous membrane. Infants are the most likely to have thrush, especially when they are malnourished or weak. And many times when children have thrush, they are infected by Candida albicans through the birth canal during the production process.
In addition to the thrush caused by the birth canal infection, there is also a risk that if the nipple or nipple is not cleaned and contaminated by Candida albicans during breastfeeding, it may also lead to thrush. Thrush will make it difficult for children to chew food or breast-feeding after the onset of this disease, which indirectly affects the physical development of children.
For thrush, we must actively prevent it. Women and friends who have just been mothers must clean their nipples when they feed their children. If they use milk bottles to feed their children, the bottles must be cleaned. Not only that, the hands of infants and adults should be cleaned, but also disinfectants can be purchased for regular disinfection.
Children’s milk bottles should be sterilized with boiling water every day. In fact, Candida, which causes thrush, is most afraid of alkaline environment. Therefore, to prevent this disease, we can regularly use soda water with a concentration of about 2% to 5% to clean children’s mouth. This way is the most effective way to prevent thrush.
In order to prevent thrush, we should also pay attention to the regular disinfection of tableware used by children at ordinary times. Toys used by children at ordinary times, bedding sheets used for sleeping, etc. should also be changed frequently and disinfected.
