In general, thrush is most likely to favor those who are malnourished or physically weak. In addition, some newborns may suffer from thrush due to infection from the birth canal during delivery. Some children may have thrush because their mothers didn’t clean their nipples properly while breastfeeding. In addition, thrush can also be caused by frequent finger biting. Thrush, also known as candidiasis, is often caused by Candida albicans, an inflammation of the oral mucosa.
Thrush is especially common in newborns, and Candida albicans is the main pathogen. In fact, this kind of pathogenic bacteria widely exists in the daily environment. Because of the poor immune ability of the newborn, when they are exposed through the birth canal or the surrounding environment, they can cause thrush.
The treatment of thrush can use broad-spectrum antibiotics and corticosteroids. In order to avoid thrush, mothers must pay attention to their own cleaning and hygiene. In the future, they can use warm water to clean their nipples. If they use a bottle to feed their children, the nipples of the bottle must be disinfected and cleaned.
The growth of Candida albicans in alkalescent environment will be severely inhibited, so you can use soda water with a concentration of about 5% to clean your nipple and the nipple of the bottle, and of course you can also use this soda water for oral cleaning. In addition, we should pay attention to the various tableware used by children every day, and it is better to disinfect them every day.
Some children may be a little older to suffer from thrush, which is mainly due to children’s exposure to toys or other objects attached to a lot of Candida albicans, which causes infection in children. So when children play with toys, they must pay attention not to let them put the toys in their mouths to bite.
