Question: Can teething cause tongue thrush in babies?
I am extremely hygienic if it comes to my baby’s pacifiers, bottles and toys but he still contracted tongue thrush could this be due to teething or should I keep the possibility of a Allergy in mind, thanks

I’ve never heard of teething or allergies causing thrush. Are you nursing? I know that my son contracted thrush through me when I was taking antibiotics during nursing. Could that be a possibility? Unfortuately, babies always stick things, especially their hands, in their mouths and even if you are the cleanest mother in the universe, these things can happen. Don’t be too hard on yourself! Discuss it with your physician and perhaps he’ll have some suggestions. I hope you work it out and your baby feels superior soon.
