He also got a few spots around his mouth which I thought was a teething rash (he's had it before bit only a spot or two then it's gone away) but now the spots have become worse, they seem to have multiplied into little ones and has spots on his tongue. I took him to the doc and he said that it's most likely a virus and not much can be done and they should clear up in about 3 to 4 days. I thought it may be hfm but there is no spots anywhere else on his body. He also uses a dummy so even though I try and keep around the mouth dry he is dribbling? A friend says she's seen her nephews with the same thing and it will go away. I'm just worried
Then poor ds as had a high temp only for the last 2 days. Again I tried panadol but he just throws up sad The last 2 nights he hasn't sleep through, he wakes every hour or two crying and wimping, obviously in pain and uncomfortable and last night was worse! I lost count how many times he kept waking up. He refused his bed time bottle but I was able to get him to take a full bottle at 2.30am. This morning he has refused his bottle but is drinking some water from his sippy so is getting some fluids down, phew
I just don't know what to do, I feel so helpless as I don't know what else to do for him except give him lots of cuddles and love.
He was just napping but has just woken up and is crying, omg, please does anyone else know what can I do? Just let it ride out like the doc says? I know he is going to get sick and teeth etc but I hate seeing him like this. sad
