  • No its not thrush, This is between her lip and teeth. White little blisters, and pink swelling.

  • Anything on the palms of her hands and feet?
    My guess would be Hand, Foot, and Mouth disease. You get little bisters on any or all of those places. If it is that, it's basically just a viral infection and will clear up. The blisters are painful so be sure you keep that in mind and give her pain killers for it.
