Any ideas of what might cause a huge sore on the tongue of a two year old (raised and white, about the size of a five penny piece), plus fever of 39 and almost constant crying? He keeps pointing to have mouth and crying.
I am wondering whether we should head to out of hours but what if it's just a mouth ulcer from a general virus? He's in so much pain though.
Google primary hepatic gigivostomatits - my ds2 had this before xmas and was very poorly with it. If it is your ds needs anti viral meds. It's grim...the Dr told.us that if ds didnt start to drink he would have to be put on a drip. Good new is after 12 hours on. The anti corals he started to feel better x
I'd get him in tomorrow morning at your gp. Keep staggering pain relief - every 3 hours - so calpol, then ibuprofen... I froze frubes yoghurt tubes for him as for 2 days it was all he could bear to eat. It's a very painful Condition but the acyclovir will sort it out x
We've been to the GP who actually diagnosed tonsillitis. Apparently he has blisters all over his tonsils as well as his mouth and GP thinks it's all parr f the same infection. On top of that he has oral thrush so we have treatment for that too.
Hmm.....really sounds like gingivostomatitis to me! If he develops mouth ulcers please take him back and get anti virals...antibiotics will do nothing...Ds had blisters in his throat too. I'm not sure it's something GPS see a lot of tbh...I told the GP that's what I thought it was and he just agreed with me!
