  • my son Logan and Haiden just had this about a month ago. Logan didn't want to eat his bottle at all he refused it and was very crabby with a low grade fever. Haiden didn't want to eat anything or even drink anything.
    I took them to the dr and they looked in each mouth and there was white dots on the back of their throat. there is no medicine they give, it just goes away on its own. Just push the fluids and rest they will get better

  • My daughter did a long time ago. It's a virus. It goes away on it's own. I can't remember the symptoms!

  • Both of mine have had it as well. There will be little red dots on their hands and feet ( mostly by their fingers and toes) have them stick out their tounge, there might be sore looking dots or really whites spots. Refusing to eat or drink is common. Try milk for them to drink, and don't force foods.

  • my son got this, i think. it came and went so quickly!
    we were on a road trip, and he was squirmy and whiny. when we got to our destination he had odd spots on his hands, and then i could watch them pop up on his feet, and then i did look in his mouth to see a few blisters. within hours there was not a trace of anything. it was quite odd!

  • My son had it around 18 months old.  White bumps or growth in his mouth.  He ate yogurt for a week, the doctor said feed him what he will eat that he had no way to treat it.
