In most cases, thrush is caused by fungal infection. The cause of the disease is relatively simple, so there is no need to do other special examinations for thrush. If children’s thrush occurs repeatedly and is serious, a small number of children’s oral white mucosa can be taken for testing, mainly to check whether there are hyphae of Candida albicans or spores of Candida albicans. The purpose of this testing method is to find out the specific pathogenic bacteria causing thrush, so that doctors can prescribe medicine for children according to the pathogenic bacteria.
In addition to the laboratory examination of the pathogenic bacteria of thrush, other examination methods are mostly observation. For example, children with thrush will have some patches on the oral mucosa, which are white in most cases. After wiping the patches, a layer of red wound can be found. At this time, thrush disease must be suspected.
Thrush can occur in the tongue, soft palate and other parts. Sometimes, it can occur in the lips. The place where the disease occurs presents white plaque shape, which is higher than the skin surface of mucous membrane. It is not easy to wipe it off with ordinary cotton swabs. If such white plaque appears in the above parts, it can be suspected that thrush exists.
If thrush is slightly infected and it is not easy to be detected when it comes on, you need to be extremely careful to find out. Because the child will not feel pain at this time, but when the food touches the thrush wound during the meal, the child will feel uncomfortable.
Once found, thrush must be treated as soon as possible, because if it is not treated, it may spread to other parts of the body, especially to the throat and tonsil. It may also induce pulmonary candidiasis and lead to the phenomenon of difficult breathing.
