I started noticing about a week and a half ago that my DD (2 1/2) has started to hae stinky breath. My mom suggested maybe it was due to her falling and hitting her tooth and maybe it is rotting. but that was about 3-4 months ago and the tooth is a BIT grey but nothing REALLY noticeable.
my dd has had a lowgrade fever for about a week. it mainly comes and goes. mostly at night, but yesterday and today it has been consistent. Nothing OVER 100.7 EVER though. She was acting normal. Right now she is on my lap with her head on me but i think she may just be sleepy. She has had stinky breathe for a bit but Then today when i picked up my DD from her gmas, the odor is radiating from her. When she opens her mouth its VER noticeable even if her head is just next to yours and not blowing it in your face.
My mom thinks i need to take her to the Dr and now im beginning to think i should as well. We have no insurance for her right now, however if i need to take her of course i will
i guess im just trying to figure out what this could be, or if anyone has experienced this?
She brushes her teeth 2 times a day, morning and night, we have tried different toothpastes but even 2 hours after we brush her teeth, the smell is pretty bad.
her diet is normal, hasnt changed, nothing new or odd to her.
any input? anything you THINK it could be? or cause it? just seems weird that shes had a fever while this happens. I know sometimes ppls breath smells from being sick but this is a smell ive never smelled from a sick person.
any advice regarding what it could be. Thank you!
