  • Yes, the white patches are caused from the Tonsilitis. Do you have her/him on Antibiotics?

  • If shes on antibiotics, its something called thrush. Find some nyacin (the oral kind) and swish it around her mouth with your finger. It's simply an imbalance of bacteria in the mouth, and can easily be remedied, although uncomfortable. If she is old enough to eat yogurt, that definetly helps. Anything with acidophilous will help!
