Pediatrician 's  Response

The blisters on her tongue may be due to oral allergy to the citrus fruits or might be due to the virus as such.

If she has such allergies- its better to inform everyone who ever takes care of her- as allergy can cause life threatening manifestations.

You may see your Pediatrician for her oral lesions. Till then you may apply oral analgesic gels like Zytee- that will reduce the pain and ease consumption of food.

Give her plenty of fluids/ bland food/ curd in plenty.
Wish your daughter good health.
