Home Remedies For Oral Thrush in Children

Oral thrush is very common in children, and if mothers do not have timely treatment of sores in the mouth, the oral thrush will grow very fast and make baby painful. The following is a list of home remedies for oral thrush.

Oral thrush is a pearl white membrane in the mouth, especially on the tongue of children. These membranes cling to the oral mucosa, causing entanglement and pain, making the child difficult to swallow.

Causes of oral thrush in children:-

The main culprit of the newborn baby's oral thrush is a fungus called Candida Albicans. This fungi normally inhabits in the intestinal tract.
In some cases, the use of antibiotics is one of the causes of candida’s growth, which leads to the oral thrush. Also, a child with a weak immune system is at risk for oral thrush easily.
The wrong way to care for newborns is also a cause of oral thrush. When the child is in a period of weaning, you should use soft foods, or soup, so that kid’s mouth is not painful. In the course of the disease, you should not let your baby contact other children to avoid the risk of infection.


In the first period of the disease, there are white scabs in the mouth, gradually these white scabs spread around the mouth. At the same time, a reddish layer like a layer of cow's milk will appear around the white scabs. Common injuries of the oral thrush consist of white patches (sometimes gray patches) on the surface of the tongue, inside of the cheeks, lips, or palate. These injuries can cause pain to the baby, lead to anorexia.

Home remedies for oral thrush:-

1. Katuk

Take a handful of katuk, rinse with cold, then wash one time with lukewarm water. Crush the katuk to get juice, then use a towel to apply the katuk juice on the tongue, and mouth. The method of using katuk is one of the most effective home remedies for oral thrush. Currently, many mothers use this vegetable juice to cure the oral thrush at the early time for children at home.

2. Green tea water:-

Green tea leaves are also one of the useful home remedies for oral thrush. Wash green tea leaves and boil with water (note add a little salt). Rinse the tongue with a towel soaked in green tea. This treatment is also useful, but due to some properties in green tea, this method is only suitable for children beyond 6 months.

3. Dyer’s weed and scallion leaves:-

Ingredients: 4 g of dyer’s weed leaves, 2 g of fresh scallion leaves.

Crush two above ingredients to get a juice, use this juice to clean baby's mouth twice or more times per day.

4. Diluted salt water:-

Dissolve the salt in cold water or use 0.1% saline. Take a small gauze and wrap in the little finger, permeate the diluted salt water, then clean your baby's mouth gently, from the inside to outside of the oral cavity.

5. Sodium Bicarbonate:-

Take 50 g of sodium bicarbonate in a glass of cold boiled water and stir until the solution is dissolved (called saturated condition), store this solution into a bottle to use gradually. When using, take a cotton swab to apply the medicine to the oral thrush area lightly, and spread out on edge. Because the drug is not toxic, it is ok to drink. Do this remedy many times a day.

6. Jackfruit leaves:-

Dry the jackfruit leaves and then burn to get the coal. Mix the burned jackfruit leaves with some honey and apply to tongue thrush 2-3 times a day.

7. Apple cider vinegar:-

Enzymes in apple cider vinegar can control infections caused by candida. Also, it improves the immune system and helps you fight against candida.

How to cure the oral thrush with apple cider vinegar:-

Adding a half teaspoon of salt and 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar into a glass of warm water and then mixing them. Use this mixture to wash the mouth several times a day until you notice an improvement.
Another way, adding a little honey and 2 tablespoons of vinegar to a glass of warm water, and drinking it two times a day.

    Wash your hands before cleaning to baby
    Avoid kissing your baby's mouth or sticking your saliva to the baby
    Do not use tongue brushes regularly, only to clean the baby's mouth gently
    When the baby has suckled its fill, you should wash the baby's mouth.
    Do not let your baby suck milk in his mouth for too long
