I brought my 19 month old to our gp, it turned out to be thrush from being on antibiotics for the last 2 weeks.

you should consult a good Paediatric doctor near by you or good paeditric dentist because this should be cared. And do some blood investigations complete blood count, ESR.
And also you can contact for this.

Thanks for query,
It seems that your son might have Thrush,
This happens if your baby was on antibiotics.
Apply Gention violet locally.
Give B.complex syrup,twice a day,
Keep his mouth clean with clean hand kerchief after giving any thing by mouth.
If secondary infection is there you can give antibiotic after consulting your doctor.
Ok and bye.

Welcome to HCM.
If your son has not been on antibiotics recently then, this could suggest vitamin deficiency. Encourage the child to have fruits and vegetables. Avoid use of antibiotics as far as possible. You can give him multivitamin drops such as DROPOVIT 0.6 ml. daily for 2 to 3 months and see if it is helpful.
Wishing your child all the best
