I'm breastfeeding my four-week old son and I noticed tiny white bumps on one area of his upper gum. There are no other patches, they don't rub off and he seems to be fine with eating. So while i would guess it's thrush, he has no other symptoms. He does have what we thought was a bad heat rash on face, arms, back and chest. In some spots it's so severe it looks more like hives. Wondering if there's any correlation with mouth bumps? He's a fair-skinned red-head so skin ailments are highly likely in our future.
