Caption: Oral candidiasis. Close-up of the mouth of a two- month-old boy with oral candidiasis (thrush). The creamy white patches around the upper lip are caused by infection with a yeast-like fungus (usually Candida albicans) which normally lives unnoticed in the human mouth, kept in check by bacteria. Oral thrush is relatively common in infants and is treated with an antifungal drug, such as nystatin. Treatment is usually successful but the condition may recur.
