Thank you for your query.

It is not uncommon to see a tag of mucus membrane at the lower end of uvula in some female babies which disappear with time.

I am wondering on whose directions you are applying cream for yeast infection as such an infection is very uncommon at this age. If a doctor has examined and advised then it is fine otherwise I shall appreciate that your daughter be examined by a doctor who will also guide you for the tag of mucus membrane.

I hope I have examined your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your daughter all the best.
