Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.
The whit patches you have mentioned suggests most likely a fungal infection or candidiasis of oral cavity . You have to use Nystatin oral solution and mouth wash to keep your mouth free of infection.
