White sores in mouth
i have a 1year old with white sore on her gums and inside her mouth what can that be please they look like little white pimples
This could be one of several conditions, including yeast infection (candidiasis; "thrush") or viral infection (such as oral herpes or enterovirus). She would have to be evaluated, ideally by either a pediatrician or an oral pathologist, in order to determine exactly what is going on.
