Thank you for your query.
It sounds as though your child has herpes stomatitis. This is a viral infection. As this is a very uncomfortable condition and anti-viral therapy is available , please discuss with your doctor to consider anti-viral treatment, systemic pain killers and a sedative at night for just a couple of days. Please give the child a soft diet and make sure of adequate fluid intake.
I trust this information is helpful.
