Small child having white patches behind tongue, red bumps on face. Tried triamcinolone cream. Permanent cure?

My 3 year old daughter has a few white patches on the back of her tongue , and around the edge of the tip of her tongue looks like little white bumps. Neither will brush off. She has had some reddish bumps on her face for the past few days that I have been putting Triamcinolone cream lightly on thinking they may have been from her eczema . Think it could be thrush because of the cream? She has no blisters and isn t complaining of any pain. I don t know what to do.

Thank you for your query.

I suggest that you stop using Traimcinolone cream and observe. Make your daughter rinse her mouth with Listerine mouth wash and observe. In case the white patches do not disappear then clotrimoxazole lotion may be applied on the white patches as treatment of oral thrush.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your daughter all the best.
