4 year old with some sort of sore in mouth
mwhite80 posted:
My 4 year old son Paul is speech delayed and cannot tell me what is wrong. I know he has a problem somewhere on the right side of his mouth. He only lets feel on the outside of his mouth without screaming and crying in protest, so i cannot feel what is wrong. I don;t know if it is a canker sore or a cavity. No problems with eating. I can brush his teeth gently but i have to be very careful. This has been goin on for three days now. Any advice?

I'd take him to the doctor or dentist. If it's a canker sore, it could be the start of Hand Foot Mouth disease. Or it could be that he has a sore throat, or really anything. I hope he feels better soon!
