  • My first thought was FOOT&Mouth Desiase but when I looked it up HERPANGINA came up as a nother possibility. I Would call the doc asap.

  • I don't know, but I would have had the poor child in the doctor's office or ER on day 2, not let them suffer for an entire week! Poor baby.

  • On day two, I would have made a call to the doctor and the dentist and had this looked at. Hopefully, you have done this this morning.
