ORAL MEDICINE : How to treat oral thrush in newborns

What are commonly known as yeast infections are caused by various species of a yeast-like fungus called Candida. 

Yeast organisms are part of the germs (including bacteria) that are normally found on various parts of the body and which ordinarily cause no symptoms. 


Thrush is a common infection in the mouth of babies, on rashes (especially nappy/diaper rashes and rashes in moist places such as under the chin of a dribbling baby), on the nipples of breast feeding mothers and in the vagina of women. It can be very irritating but it is treatable.
