Help! Sick baby

My 18month old son has red inflamed gums, sore throat, and fever. I took him to the dr and she said its a virus that will go away in 2-3 days. Well today is day 5, and hes gotten worse. His fever has subsided, but his gums are SO red and swollen and painful. I can only get him to eat soft foods and he wont let me brush his teeth because it hurts so bad. Plus his breath is so stinky. I researed the virus that causes it and it said its a herpes type 1 virus--like the kind an adult gets from a cold sore. Do you know any remedies or medicines? Has your child had this? Should I take him to the dentist or dr?

I'm sorry I don't have any advice for that... your guess is as good as mine. But you and your son will be in my prayers.
