Ds has this right now too. Had the fever over the weekend, just discovered the sores today. Under his tongue, on his soft palate, and his tonsil. Ow.
I don't know if you can get it twice. He had something similar when he was 2.5 but I think that was a primary herpes (coldsore) outbreak. He was nursing then and survived on breastmilk for about a week, and I thanked God he was still nursing! If not, I'm sure we would have ended up in the ER needing fluids.
If older dd had HFM I *think* herpangina is related but not exactly the same, so my impression would be that's probably what dd has. I think 7-10 days was the healing time for the sores. Hopefully less!
We are using popcicles and motrin to releave some inflamation. Will younger dd eat a frozen fruit slush type thing? (or older dd?)
*hugs* Mine is a singleton, so I still don't know how Momma's get by with two sickies in the house! My heart goes out to you and hope every one is feeling better soon!
