Hi thanks for the query.

Although you have not provided the exact question you want to ask, as per the details I am taking it as you want to know the reason of white spots on the tongue of your child.

There are many causes of white spots on tongue in children but the most common are dehydration, infected debris on the tongue OR candida infection. In my opinion these white spots are not related to hay fever. At this stage I would advise you to get it examined and if required a biopsy can be taken from the spot for histopathology for exact diagnosis.

Good Luck.

Hope this information is helpful and informative to you.
