    Joani had that when she was about 2. From what I remember she just had calpol to sooth any fevers and also to help with the pain in her mouth... she was all blistered etc inside....I think it is spread through saliver etc.

    :hugs: hope LO feels better soon its not very nice :(

    and not long after she had had that she ended up with bloody scarlett fever!!

    :hugs::hugs:
