    Usually we would use aciclovir and xylocaine viscous. The aciclovir is prescription but the xylocaine is over the counter but expensive. It is a numbing gel that encourages eating and drinking as it numbs it enough to make it comfortable.

    I'd get a second opinion tomorrow. Hugs xx
    yep this is what i suggested yesterday. poor little darling. just make sure she stays hydrated in the mean time before you get here back to the doctor and take her to emergency if you think she is getting dehydrated. so horrible seeing them in pain

    Yep, that's exactly what I thought before I went to the doctors but she didn't say anything and didn't prescribe anything.other than the antibiotics.
    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

    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!
