my daughter had that a couple of months ago. lasted about 9 days. they called it the hand/foot disease, but she only had the ulcers in her mouth. i dont remember the dr giving me anything. i know it was hard for my girl to eat, and it was so sad cause shed cry and cry, but it hurt her to eat. i gave her juice, sometimes ice cream. i figured something cold would feel ok on it when she ate it. or cold jello.
i didnt really understand why kids get it, from my understanding it was cause unsanitary cleaniness...or un cooked food. the doctor told me it could be anything, she had a list.
you should bring her to her doctor. thats the best thing you can do. they will help you out more than we can. good luck. dont worry, it will get better/
