14 month old son with bronchitis and bleeding gums

My 14 month old son was recently diagnosed with bronchiolitis and now is experiencing bleeding gums and has sores on his outer lip, the upper inner lip, and tongue. Are these sores caused by the virus that causes bronchiolitis or is it a dental problem?

If they gave him medacine for the bronghiolits I would call the pharmacy and ask if it could be from it.

thanks for choosing health care magic.When ever any infection affects the body it leads to vitamin deficiency especially in children.So this leads to such kind ulcers in mouth.At the same time so medicines can have lead to this but your doctor only can confirm this so pl.see your doctor and get your child examined.It could be again due to some infective reason also.
