Since Sunday morning when DD got a single blister on her foot, to today where she is just starting to show signs of recovery, she has barely eaten, and is crying constantly through the day because her mouth is so painful. She will literally take a mouthful or two then burst into tears and refuse to eat anything else. She was (up until last night) still drinking plenty of cold water and milk, but she's barely eaten. We've tried jelly, custard, soups, cheesy pops (her favourite treat in the world, and she's still asking for them but only has one little bite before the inevitable), soft pasta, biscuits that we've dunked in milk, and probably more but I am SO sleep deprived I can't think, but she can't eat any of it.
The spots on her legs seemed to have improved this morning, they're beginning to fade, and I'm sure her mouth is probably going to get better too, but has anyone else had a child suffer this, and have some ideas on soft food?
The last 3.5 days have been absolute hell, DP and I have been tag teaming trying to comfort her, and I can't find any helpful information. All the doctor said to do was give her panadol to help with the pain and fever. She is literally crying all day on and off, and getting no more than an hours sleep at a time.
Also, her breath stinks!! I'm assuming it's from the ulcers, but I've been brushing her teeth at least twice a day (gently, but I know I have to do it) and within 10 minutes its back to this weird icky smell.
