white around mouth
7 year old - white around mouth. Sign of what?
I really need a little more information to be certain about the cause of your child's white appearance around the mouth. This could be due to anaemia or a candida infection [thrush] or due to a viral infection called herpes stomatitis. Please ask your doctor to see your child.

You should consult a medical practitioner or other appropriate health care professional for a physical examination, diagnosis and formal advice.
