    Default Mouth ulcers...what to feed DD

    Hi everyone,
    DD has been unwell with a cold for past week and today said her mouth hurt..looked and saw 2 ulcers on either side of her mouth over her molars..
    she hasnt eaten anything all day except ait of milk (that too was hard) and water..
    I tried soft things like yoghurt, custard, ice cream but after the first bite she refused
    any advsise?? she generally is a picky eater so her not eating is worrying.

    anu suggestions for treating the ulcers?? the GP suggested oral anesthetic gel (i had SM 33) but its so hard to put it over the ulcer and 1 taste of it DD refused any further aplications.

    shes never that ulcers before.. i might get some probiotics to help

    How old is your DD? My DS1 got ulcers when he was little - can't remember exactly - but he was a baby. He ended up becoming dehydrated and we had to take him to the hospital. Have you tried ice blocks?

    My three all had hand foot and mouth recently and their mouths were full of ulcers. Initially they couldn't eat anything at all and could only drink through a straw (straws meant the liquid didn't touch their ulcers as much so it didn't hurt to drink) but after the worst of it passed they all were able to eat scrambled eggs. Mine are older kids though, 10, 7 and 3.5 so if yours is younger, the danger of dehydration is worse.

    We're just getting over hand, foot & mouth.. With a mouth full of ulcers for both ds1 & ds2.

    Cold pasta, warm soup/broth to drink out of a cup seemed to help. Even just plain bread & butter. Everything else hurt them.

    Plain water, no juice.

    HTH

    DD had a virus not long ago which gave her a mouth full of ulcers. The only food she would take was yoghurt and also peaches in jelly. I made sure I used the spoon to mash the peach pieces up.

    DD ended up geting medicine with paracetamol combined with an analgesic.

    Get some kenalog in orabase. It's really thick and gross but it will get rid of the ulcers quickly!
