Re: Sores in 2 year olds mouth
Yes, it does sound like thrush, a form of yeast infection. (Yes, yeast can grow in places other than the genitals. Basically, the conditions for its growth are: warmth, heat, and moisture -- so the digestive tract qualifies -- and its favorite "food" is SUGAR from milk, carb-rich foods, etc.) My sister's baby had it, and the only doctor who correctly diagnosed it was a pediatric allergy specialist. Unfortunately, she had to pay out-of-pocket, but it was worth it to have her child correctly diagnosed. Good luck. Hope this helps and that your baby gets better soon.
