advice for soars in 2 year olds mouth

Louisa - posted on 04/27/2009 ( 1 mom has responded )




My 2 year old son and i went to the doctor friday and found out he had bilateral ear infections and also a sore on his tongue. The doctor said the sore was from a virus. Now he has 2 sores in his mouth and 4 surrounding his bottom lip on his chin. Well now my son is practically refusing to eat and to take his chewable antibiotics or tylenol. He tries to eat them, then cries and spits them back out and says oww. I have tried putting orajel on the sores in his mouth but it doesnt seem to help much. Is there anything else anyone knows of that can help him? I called the doctor again today and they said i could make a mixture of benadryl and maalox and rub it on his tongue to help clear it up but in the meantime does anyone have some advice?
