She said to put bonjela on it.
Anyone's kiddies had it before and did it last long?
I read online it says 7-10 days. I just hope it won't get worse
Now I am paranoid that DS will get it too.
I have tried to offer her icy poles, smoothies and yogurt. Hopefully will see some improvement tomorrow
Would be good to get another opinion to get a confirmed diagnosis because then if your DS gets it when he starts showing symptoms you can take him straight to dr for the antiviral and they will lessen the severity. Hope she is on the mend
How is your dd op? Is she on the mend? Hope she is feeling better
hope she is feeling better.
so horrible when they are not well - especially when the Dr doesnt seem to listen
Thank you ladies
She's finally starting to feel better and is starting to eat again.
It's been a stressful 2 weeks
Her lips did get worse and more ulcers appeared inside her mouth too. But I just kept on offering her cold food and drinks and panadol for her fever.
She would wake up in the morning with blood on the pillow from her lips! Poor thing.
But it's all over now. She's looking a lot better
Hi OP, glad to hear you little one is getting gradually better. Just wanted to let you know my DD got this a few years ago and then i got it too. The swollen gums thing was the strangest thing i have ever got, teeth disappeared into my gums and lots of bleeding and ulcers. Dr couldn't give us a diagnosis either, said we were the only people she had seen with it, even when i went back a week later. I had assumed it was "just the thing going around". From memory she took swabs with still no clear outcome. Took a week to clear up but her gums remained sensitive and were difficult to brush for some time. Just be careful as adults can get it too. DH was spared.

Thank you for that!
It was scary, her gums were bright red covering her teeth!
Hopefully no one else will get it! Especially DS! Fingers crossed!
