Answer

Discuss thrush etiology and incidence as part of general reassurance to the parents of the healthy newborn or infant.

If indicated, offer information about the necessity of further evaluation for underlying immune dysfunction.

For excellent patient education resources, visit eMedicineHealth's Infections Center. Also, see eMedicineHealth's patient education article Candidiasis (Yeast Infection).
