Hi. I have a two year old son who has been very sick for the past 3-4 days. I took him to the Doctor on the 30th( 2 days ago) and the Dr. Looked in his throat, ears and listened to his lungs, He didn't ever say what was wrong with my son ( which kind of ticked me off.. this was the E.R being as it was a Saturday) He just wrote him a prescription for amoxicillin and DE CHLOR cough syrup. Now my soon has what looks like a rash or tiny blisters in his mouth, is really whiney..has a small fever at times, and doesn't want to eat or drink hardly at all. He has had a fever since Saturday but it goes away with no problem when I give him children's motrin. I am definitely going to take him to a different doctor tomorrow if he doesn't show any improvement, but in the mean time my question is, are the blister type lesions in his mouth due to the fever he has had? Or has anyone ever experienced anything simiular to this or has anyone ever heard of this...? Anything you know I would love to hear and any input or advice would be GREATLY appreciated. I'm very worried for my son. Thanks!

I am a 50 year old male who has had a bad flu for the past 6 days with fever and also with the same blister type lesions as you have discribed for your son. I am searching the web to understand what these blisters are from, but I highly suspect they are result of the flu and the high fever. Hope you son is well!

I think you should google hand,foot and mouth disease.My 2 year old has the same thing and we ended up at a infectious disease specialist and that is one of the many things they are testing him for.

Hope this helps.Its also called coxsackie virus.

My 2 year old son has fevers and sores in his mouth
My son is almost 2 and I took him on wednesday to the dr for fevers unkown. They did a strep test and checked his ears and lungs. They found nothig wrong with him. Later that night we noticed a littly sore in the corner of his mouth we thought this could be a reason he doesnt want to eat or drink much. He still had fevers this morning(friday) so we took him again and the dr said he saw some lil blisters in his mouth also. But nothing else other then the fevers also controlled by motrin. Im worried that this is so similar to your concerns with your child.

Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease
My 3 year old daughter is just getting over Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease. It is a common virus that seems to effect children more often than adults. She has blisters in her mouth, on her hands, feet and now all over her back and chest. The fever lasted about 3 days but I am told the blisters could last a week or more. She has screaming fits in the middle of the night and I know other children who had the same rough nights with this virus. It breaks your heart. Google Hand, foot and mouth disease and contact your family doctor.

Sounds like either flu.. Foot mouth ... Or a rarer virus called coxsackie virus
I've heard of this many times lately. Ask doctors about those or they won't bother to check Smile
