if you're asking what to do for this painful uncomfortable problem for newborns, you need to go to your pediatrician for a professional proper diagnosis so that treatment can be started ASAP. I don't know if new & better treatments are available but the standard is liquid Nystatin. it comes in a bottle w/ a big dropper easier to put the prescribed dose on & in back of the tongue. you can ask your pediatrician & google ways to make your baby comfortable. never try to scrape your baby's tongue. it's painful and cause it to spread. also this is very contagious to others. practice handwashing.
