2.7 teething and mouth ulcers

This is horrible. She wants to eat food but is really struggling at the moment with her favourite fish pie. There is one ulcer right at the back of her mouth, and at least one other on her bottom gums. And a new molar that I think still hurts and possibly 2 more just about to come through.

She has had various colds for a long time and must be run down poor thing.

Any tips for what to feed her, and to help her not be run down?

She screams at bonjela!

Bland foods, I guess, nothing tart or vinegary. Poor wee mite, that sounds horrid. I'm not sure quite how you'd apply it but Adcortyl in Orabase is very good for healing ulcers. You'd need to check it out re suitable age first though - I don't have any here to check for you.
