Child have white patches. No medication taken till now. What could be the cause and the remedy?

Hi, my 2 1/2 year old daughter has a couple of white patches on the inside lower lip, it sort of reminds me of thrush from the infant days but I am not for sure. If it could be something to be more concerned about and she should be seen by her pediatrician I would rather know that is a possibility than thinking it is simply thrush.

Hi, thanks for your query.

White patches on the inner side of lower lip are most commonly due to thrush.
But there are other possibilities which may be as follows:
-It could be bacterial or viral infection
-Accidental bites in lower lip
-These may represent the openings of minor salivary glands found throughout the lips.
I suggest that she should be examined by a pediatrician for exact diagnosis and treatment.
Hope this solves your query.
I wish her a speedy recovery
