I would check with your doctor. My son was only 2 weeks old and got thrush. It looks like caked up milk, but it hurts if you rub it off. My doctor said not to wipe it off. She gave him some medicine and it has almost gone away. Be sure to sanitize pacifiers good because that is a main cause of it.

Be sure to read this article from WebMD. It really helped me understand it.

Hope it helps and you can get it cured. But I wouldn't rub it off because it can be painful to your baby.

That works also I did that with my son.. He was really bad with puking so they told me to take like 2 oz of baby water n let him drink what he would..
