Oral Thrush

Oral Thrush: Oral thrush is a yeast infection that develops on the inside of your mouth and on your tongue. It is caused by Candida albicans (C. albicans) .

Symptoms of  Oral Thrush

  • creamy white bumps on the tongue, inner cheeks, gums, or tonsils
  • slight bleeding when the bumps are scraped
  • pain at the site of the bumps
  • angular cheilitis, or dry, cracked skin at the corners of the mouth
  • difficulty swallowing
  • a bad taste in the mouth

In Babies, oral thrush may occasionally cause:

  • difficulty feeding
  • fussiness
  • irritability

Babies that have oral thrush infection can transmit it to their mothers during breastfeeding. Mothers and their babies can get caught in a cycle of transmission. If you’re breastfeeding and your breasts contract the fungus, you may experience:

  • intense itching, sensitivity, or pain in the nipples
  • flaking or shiny skin on the area surrounding the nipple
  • severe pain during breastfeeding
  • sharp, piercing pain in the breast
