This is Dr. David

she could have an oral fungal infection

or she could be having dysfunction of her salivary glands

she needs to see a doctor right away and see if she has oral thrush fungal infection.

there are prescription antifungal treatments for oral fungal infections.

if her salivary glands are not making enough saliva there are medications which can stimulate the salivary glands to work

does she have a GP doctor who can look in her mouth?
