sore tongue, drooling and little blisters at corner of mouth?
Hello there. My 2 year old has been making me understand she has a sore tongue for the last couple of days. Last night I had to change her PJs as she was drooling like during teething and this afternoon 2 little blisters have come up at the corner of her mouth. We saw her cousins last weekend and I just learnt they had been complaining about sore tongues last week... Does anyone have any ideas what this might be??? Many thanks
Hand foot and mouth.I had this without any spots on my hands or feet, but the ulcers were awful. The doctor won't give you anything ofr it except maybe somehting to numb the pain in her mouth. It's very contagious, though harmless, so make sure you tell nursery if she attends as they'll have to let others know.
Give her some calpol, and use a medicine syringe rather than a spoon as it'll be easier to swallow. When I had hand foot and mouth my only symptom was the mouth, and I only knew I had it (confirmed by doctor) as it was going around school. It hurts a LOT. I could barely eat or drink for days. Get her to a pharmacist tomorrow for some numbing gel for her mouth. It'll help enormously.
The endless drooling was what tipped off the doctors that my DS had h, f and m. He did get spots in the end but they were very light - his throat and tonsils were covered in ulcers by that point. Maybe worth a trip to the doctor if your DC's mouth doesn't improve? Although the doctor just told me to give the standard paracetamol/ibruprofen for the pain/fever and wait for the h, f and m to clear.
