Picture of Baby Yeast Infections
In infants, patches of thrush may be mistaken for formula or milk as they have a whitish, cottage-cheese like appearance. It is not advisable to touch or try to wipe away the lesions because it may make the areas red and tender. Babies who have thrush may be cranky and refuse to eat.
