Pediatrician 's  Response
such an acute condiditon looks like an infection only.
but if its continuing tuill now you should also consider b complex deficincy.
the term is called apthae.again i would say that physical examination is a must.but theres no harm in taking b complex supplements capsules in the right dose.
hope it helps.
in case it doesnt help you should show it again to prescribe the right antibiotic/antifungal.
