Hi,

You may be right. It may be candida disease called oral thrush caused by poor immunity. Consult the dermatologist for the perfect diagnosis and proper treatment. Oral anti-fungal tablets and local application of anti-fungal gel would improve the condition. And take steps to improve the immunity.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ilyas Patel, Dermatologist
