Brief Answer:
mouth sores

Detailed Answer:

I have gone through all 3 attached images.

Mouth sores generally go away within 7 to 14 days with no treatment.
You can do the following at home to relieve your child’s symptoms:
Give your child over-the-counter (OTC) medications, such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen, to treat pain and fever.

Cold liquids, ice, or frozen juice bars may help soothe mouth pain. Avoid giving your child spicy or acidic foods.
Liquid antacid 4 times a day may help relieve the pain. Rub half a teaspoon (2.5 mL) of liquid antacid rubbed over the front of the mouth.

As the sores are more there are more chances of the cause being the fungal mouth ulcers or due to vitamin deficiency. I suggest you to consult the pediatrician if these persists for more than 7 days.

Take care.

Brief Answer:
No

Detailed Answer:
It is due to vitamin and Iron deficiency.

Usually the fever is associated with the sores due to pain.
You can give paracetamol 3ml for the pain as well as fever.

I treat such case with zinc and iron supplements. See if your pediatrician shares the same opinion.

Take care....
