Abbigail has 3 small white bumps on her lips at the corner of her mouth, she tells me they hurt. Not really sure what it is, she is running a low grade fever, coughing and stuffed up.

Any ideas?

Sounds like it could be Hand, Foot and Mouth. DD just had it a few weeks ago. Check her hands and feet for small red bumps that kind of look like chicken pox. Also check the inside of her mouth for more sores/blisters, they are usually on the tongue, cheeks and can be on the outside around the mouth as well. Hope this isn't what she has but with the blisters at the corners of her mouth, low grade fever and cold like symptoms it sure sounds like it to me.

I just checked and she doesn't have any blisters anywhere else, the only other things I noticed is a small red patchy looking thing on the inside of her cheek, and I found another small blister on her lower lip.
