My son had been complaining today that his mouth was hurting and i checked it out and he has a blister, i feel so bad cause i know it's uncomfortable for him but i don't know what i can give him. Does anyone have an answer to what i can do for him and how to make it heal???

Hmmm I don't really have a good answer... where is it in his mouth?? Could it be from sucking his thumb or something else and it's caused a blister? Or could it be he ate something too hot that blistered him? I think hand, foot and mouth can cause blisters??? Not sure.

As for how to help it heal... I have no clue. It's hard when it's in the mouth... can't really put ointment on it very well, you know? I would say swish like saltwater or something... but I don't know that you can really get a two-year-old to do that. Maybe put a call into your pedi and see what they say. Luckily, the mouth is a part of the body that heals pretty quickly.

I get them from drinking citrus...OJ, pineapple, Vit C tabs, pretty much anything like that leaves "blisters" in my mouth. Stress is also a cause. You can use oragel, and tylenol/motrin, but other than that, you have to wait it out.

tylenol/motrin brands shouldn't be on the shelf anymore as it has been recalled. Use generic brands.

Good luck!

Check with your pedi first something we prescribe at my office is "Magic Moutwash" 1/2 tsp of benadryl mixed with a 1/2 tsp of maalox regular strength. But Please Please check with your pedi first.

It could be the hand, foot, and mouth virus. It's very common in young children. If that's the case, he will be contagious for a while. It manifests in different ways in children. Some get fevers and blisters everywhere. Some just get a few sores in their mouths. Hope he feels better soon!
