Hello,

I can understand your concern. It seems that the child is suffering from the stomach infection that is causing the headache, fever and stomach ache. Tylenol alone will not help to cure the infection. Based on the age and weight of the child, the child needs to be given antibiotics.

In addition, the mouth blisters that the child is suffering from can be attributed to the stomach infection or presence of vitamin B complex deficiency. This should subside itself after the stomach infection is cured. You can also start Vitamin B complex supplements such as B-Folcin once a day. Also, local Benzocaine gel (Mucopain) can be applied to the mouth sores for faster healing and relief from pain.

I would advise you to visit a pediatrician for the clinical examination regarding the stomach pain and for the prescription of antibiotics based on the age and weight of the child.

I hope this information helps you. Thank you for choosing HealthcareMagic. I wish the child gets well soon.

Best,
Dr. Viraj Shah
