My daughter is almost 3.5 years old and started complaining of mouth pain when we all had a bad cold/flu. It recurred a few times. She pointed to her tongue and I thought it was her throat. However, she kept bringing it up on and off after the cold was gone. We went to the dentist and she has three tiny cavities that we plan to fill, one the first time and two the next time but he says they shouldn't be causing her pain. Only other thing I can think of is that she had a tongue tie clipped at 6 weeks...so maybe that's it? Doubtful, but I have a call in to the pediatric surgeon who clipped it. She doesn't act in pain, but this morning brought it up herself. Maybe it's a bad taste? But she is usually pretty accurate in reporting things and is very verbal. We have a pediatrician appointment Monday to see what he says as well. I have looked in her mouth and throat many times and all looks good in there, besides the tiny cavities.
Some people at the Life With A Babe forum suggested it might be a sinus infection. I'll mention it to the ped and our homeopath, but I wondered how we would know if it was that. I googled it but didn't get anything that helped me a lot. And if it is a sinus infection, what would we do? I suppose the ped would prescribe antibiotics but I'm not keen on giving them, so any other suggestions would be helpful.
She is still nursing, but does not want EBM in her nose...I've suggested it a few times and always been turned down!
Thanks for any ideas!!!!
Not sure if this is it, but my 3 yr old was complaining of tongue pain a couple of weeks ago and it turned out that he had coxsackie virus.( Hand, Foot, Mouth Disease).
His ped said it's very common in the summer months.
He couldn't eat much for a few days, but it resolved in about a week.
