  • Is it inside her mouth or outside of her mouth? Outside of her mouth might be a cold sore, inside you can use peroxide or salt water, anything to dry it out. I know thats hard if its inside the mouth but keep applying it and it should work in a few days, you can even do a mouth wash but that might be too strong for her.

  • If the sore is on the outside of your daughter's mouth, it may be a cold sore. Since your daughter is so young, she may not be able to tell you what she feels. Cold sores are generally painful and can include itching, burning and tingling. They are also very contagious and can spread from kissing, touching, sharing cups and utensils, towels, etc.

    Since you want to heal the cold sore quickly, look into all natural Lip Clear Lysine+. It's made with the active zinc oxide, as well as lysine and 14 other natural ingredients to help treat cold sores faster. It is also clinically shown to reduce the duration of cold sores by 50% compared to untreated cold sores, with a median heal time of four days. Lip Clear Lysine+ provides immediate soothing relief of burning and itching. Check out

    Contact your pediatrician or dentist if you have questions. Hope it clearly up quickly.
