Hi there,
My dd (3.4yrs)has been burning a fever of 39 or so and has swollen, red, sore gums. She cried like crazy when I cleaned her teeth and screamed when I put Bonjela on her gums.

It definitely isn't tooth decay/gum disease related as she saw a dentist just two days ago and was declared to be perfect.

We flew out from the UK to Greece today (poor child), and fly on again tomorrow. We're away from home for about a month. Obviously we've got to find a doctor somewhere in transit, but in the meantime has anyone got any ideas just what could be the matter with her?

Hmm. Possibly hand, foot and mouth? Are there patches on her hands and feet that are blisters/peeling?
