Tongue

Question:

my daughter taste buds are white and raised up,also she have white skin peeling under her top lip.what is it?burnt taste buds or thrush?

Answer:

There are too many details missing from your description for me to provide much help. Although the tongue or lip changes do not sound serious, if they persist for more than a week, I suggest you take your daughter to see a pediatric dentist (specialty trained to see children). Good luck!
