  • I agree. Something you can do is when you take him in explain that you don't have insurance and they will either help you get medical for him or they will get you some kind of charity grant to cover most is not all of the visit. As for paying for the meds if they won't just add it to your hospital bill and get it from their pharm you can do things like selling plasma or even going to your church or another local one if you don't go and seeing if they won't help. Being that it's your son I don't see why they wouldn't.

  • Thrush, maybe? Does he have any other symptoms? Fever?

  • I agree on the thrush thing. That means he has a infection in his mouth. It happens to kids/babies sometimes. Its painful. It like a yeast infection. You HAVE to get some medical attention or it wont go away.

  • Yeah, that sounds like thrush. You need to get him treated immediatley!!! I don't have insurance but I still manage. If it is it can travel, so I suggest you get treatment for that ASAP. It probably burns. He will need a special wash for his throat and mouth and medication.

  • One thing you can try is go to the pharmacy and gentian violet. Put that in his mouth and the trust will go away. It's over the counter and safe to try. If that doesn't work, then you know. Be careful though. It's seriously purple and will stain everything.

  • *Thrush...on trust.

  • Why dont you get your kids on medicaid or something? Just wondering. If you cant afford insurance for your kids that is what it's there for. Even if you work you can get it as long as you dont make a bunch of money.
