What's causing his sore mouth :-(

Hi just wondering if anyone has any similar experiences. My 10 month old DS has had a really sore mouth for a couple of days, he's teething of course but has never reacted like this to his other teeth arriving. He's drooling LOADS, has a few spots round his mouth which I thought might be HF&M but none anywhere else and they haven't got any worse since yesterday. Spots rather than blisters. He also has one in his lip, again a spot, doesn't look like a cold sore but maybe it is?? Anywho he's in loads of discomfort when trying to eat, can't take a bottle at all, no solid food apart from v smooth yoghurt, looks hungry and like he wants it but then once it's in his mouth he flinches and crys, I've managed to give him some formula in a sippy cup which he's taking with difficulty but at least it's something. There's no obvious ulcers or anything I can see. Giving him calpol and baby nurofen... Any other ideas? He's sleeping now with no dummy which is unheard of, he just can't suck one the poor lad... TIA

I would call OOH doctors,that sounds awful.

Thanks, went to NHS walk in who diagnosed possible hand foot and mouth without any spots on feet and hands, have a mouth spray to numb his mouth (he has spots in there too), fingers crossed he feels better soon!'
