My 11 week old son has been battling with what we were told was thrush. He has a white coating on the middle to back of his tongue. It is pretty far back, so it is difficult to try and wipe off, There are no white patches on his gums, lips or cheeks, and he has never developed a diaper rash. His feeding has not been affected, he eats great. We have tried multiple treatments. Nystatin, 20 day course of diflucan, gentian violet, grapefruit seed extract. I have spent hundreds of dollars on new bottles/nipples/pacis. We boil them after each use as well.
He shows no sign of anything else such as an immunodefficiency. He has no fevers, gaining weight appropriately (14lbs), he is not fussy. Is there a chance that this is just a white tongue from a milk diet?
