  • I found this link for children's mouth problems here:

    This one is for adult's, but may help some, kids can sometimes have these problems too I think

    Have you tried a google search?

    Can you get him to a doctor? He may really need to be seen. Can you get his parent to take him?

    I hope you figure it out and he's better soon. Wish I could have been more of a help. Good luck. :-)
