Thanks for sharing pictures.

Sorry for delay in reply.

Well, It sounds to be oral thrush, It is an infection in the mouth caused by Candida.

The line of treatment is-
Miconazole mouth gel for seven days.

Nystatin drops are another option, You can buy this as OTC.

If symptoms, doesn't improve, then he may need oral anti-fungal drug fluconazole.

he can start with above medications. This is easily available as OTC.

I am sorry, we are not allowed to give prescription.

He should drink plenty of water.Take healthy and well balanced diet.
He should Eat plain yogurt with live and active cultures as this may help to restore the proper fauna in your mouth. He should brush tongue regularly- twice a day.

These measures, would surely help him.

Hope this helped

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
