    has anyone ever seen a blister in the back of their childs throat? i was at a parenting group yesterday and one of the ladies there noticed way at the back of alanas throat near the back of her tongue a blister looking thing. you can only see it when she cries, and it doesn't seem to be bothering her with anything else feeding or anything, its just there.

    i've talked to a couple health nurses and they've never heard of it before... i googled it and it said it could be some virus that typically goes away in a few days. i took her up to the hospital but ending up leaving after a few hours because 3 people had the flu and were throwing up, so i didn't really want to subject her to that.

    i'm a bit worried, but not really as its not affecting anything else for her, just wondering if anyones heard/seen anything like that? also its not like a puffy out blister, more a flattish one if that makes sense? thanks

    i think its gone away. i haven't seen it lately, and i never got to the dr what with christmas and all, but like i said it didn't seem to be bothering her, and hasn't affected anything eating and such, so i'm not too worried about it now. :D probably just a fluke thing that no one really sees most of the time :roll:
