Sore lips in toddlers

Common Questions and Answers about Sore lips in toddlers


Avatar n tn Well, he was slightly blue this morning in the lips and on his hands a bit. My wife ran him to his doctor so she could take a look at it. She is sending us to a blood specialist and we will go from there. She is could be a lack of Vitamin C? Doesn't make sense, but .... we will see. I will keep you all posted with what happens in the next week or so.
Avatar n tn I read that a person is contagious for MONTHS after the primary attack and a sore need not be present to be contagious. How likely is it that the virus will be in her saliva after the baby is born? What if my husband and I get it from her? Does this mean we have to all avoid touching the newborn baby for months since we will be contagious for months with or without sores? I woke up with a bad sore throat 2 days after her initial exposure, does this mean I probably have it now?
Avatar n tn I'm 39, mother of two toddlers, low blood pressure, a little overweight but in good general health. I did just start drinking more coffee though (two-three cups/day), but, I have been drinking tea for quite some time.
Avatar n tn He said that the scans don't show any cause for this to be happening and it looks like it is curving in rather than the bone thinning in that area. At this point it isn't affecting my brain, so he wants me to repeat the scans in October and come back so he can see if there are any changes. Keep in touch if you find anything out about yours. and feel free to send me a message in my inbox - I have a watch on this post and my inbox and I recieve an email whenever anyone posts to it.
Avatar m tn Social pecks are far less likely to transmit hsv1 than romantic kisses are so overall it's low risk to peck a child on the lips, especially once they are toddlers or older.
Avatar n tn Since statistically over half of the adults around your baby have hsv1 orally, even if they can't recall ever having a cold sore, just telling everyone that your pediatrician stressed that no one should be kissing the baby on the lips in the begining due to all germs in general is a good idea. Still plenty of ways to love an adorable little baby - it's pretty safe to kiss the hands, feet and belly's ( ok so raspberry's are for the bellies not just plain ordinary kisses....
1549204 tn?1353365273 That is slightly possible forn only the primary outbreak or for immunodeficient people. As for your oiuth sore if you are sure it is a typical cold sore it is likele to be hsv1 since your childhood or it spread from a social kiss/saliva sharing. Was his test IgG?Please not that stabdard type specific IgG tests still misss up to%10 of infections.
Avatar f tn Could you give me a little more information regarding why there is no risk of HSV-1 transmission from using a lip gloss tester under the scenario that I described? I rubbed the gloss off my lips. 2. How long does hsv-1 live in lip gloss at room temperature? Would it be viable over night? Would gloss dilute any saliva making it hard for HSV-1 to live in the gloss tube? I ask because there was a recent article citing dermatologists stating that in addition to e.
524832 tn?1229684586 , I thought (I initially assumed it was due to copious oil-based stage makeup to my lip, combined with my lips being chapped and swollen from a cold), and I poked and prodded it. I then...well, I then had a pee (without washing my hands beforehand). It was only later that the thought occured to me that this "pimple" might have been a herpes cold sore and after some panicked googling, I found that the infection can indeed be transmitted to your nether regions.
Avatar m tn I would add that it would be wise for your child to see the pediatrician for diagnosis of the apparent cold sore. There are many potential causes other than herpes. (Also, I assume by "cold sore" you understand that this means a lesion on the face or lips, not inside the mouth. One or two open sores in the mouth usually are canker sores, which have nothing to do with herpes.
Avatar f tn and I am desperately trying to figure out why I continue to break out in hives and have joint pain in my elbows, feet, hands and legs. I too started breaking out in hives after taking the antibotic Solodyn for acne. After a trip to the ER, it was assumed that I had an alergic reaction to the medicine. I stopped taking the medicine after only 3 weeks and needless to say, I am still breaking out in hives and have joint pain. I have been tested for allergies and that was negative.
Avatar f tn what is normal bacteria in the genital area, isn't always so normal in an open sore on the mouth as well as it's best not to tempt fate and expose your genital area to active herpes virus needlessly. also the "trauma" of performing oral with an active cold sore can delay how long it takes it to heal. do you use herpes antivirals at all for speeding the healing of cold sores?
Avatar f tn We have 6 children, 2 are toddlers and my wife felt the same as you at first. This infection is not like the flu, as long as you are not rubbing your vagina on your kids you have nothing to worry about. Don't freak, get on the valtrex...the symtoms become less frequent over time.
Avatar m tn As you know I am suffering this for almost 2 years now. This appeared out of the blue in June 2012 (I say out of the blue because I don't take drugs, don't smoke, don't have diabetes, didn't have chemotherapy, and didn't take medicines for long periods of time -besides 1 week of cyprofloxacin in March 2012).
Avatar m tn Herpes can be with 1 blister up to many blisters The sores can also be in different areas during an outbreak...meaning one sore could be on your bottom while the other sore in on the vagina, but its still part of the outbreak. Sometimes, sores could be in one area. It just depends... Dirty fingernails, touching door knobs, or touching he hair won't cause blisters. What causes blisters in an infected individual include: stress, a trauma, etc...
Avatar n tn I had a stent in but it has been removed. The area is also very red.The hardness is not round but goes the length of my lip. Could this be a boil, herpes or what?
Avatar n tn I also have had Pneumonia once before that took a while to clear and now seem to have some sort of sinus/mucus problem and occasionally experience a slight shortness of breath, again these may not be related and some may be down to the fact i am not in the best shape I could be in but I do not drink or smoke etc. I do think the bottom line is seeing my Doctor in the vain hope whoever I see will show some kind of interest and point me in the right direction so a diagnosis can be reached.
485259 tn?1519050626 I bought Stash's peppermint tea, it tastes very good and I put some honey in it for the sore throat I had from the breathing tube, that's starting to go away now. Get the pitted prunes from Sunsweet and snack on them, I only ate about 6 or so and it did the job along with the stool softeners. The pain meds will constipate you so if you take them for a few days add the stool softners, but don't overdo it or you might get the runs.
288415 tn?1231634102 Av, its horrible. Mine has been going on for three years. The only benefit is that I do not hear my husband's snoring. I lay down and they immediately clog. I did used to get really nasty smelling crud out of them every morning. I have had times when my jaw is so sore, or my ear, or below my ear. This has been such a pain in "the ear" for me. Richt now the itchiness is truly driving me nuts.
Avatar n tn No solutions, I figure. Just wanted to drop in and add my two cents to others' contributions.
Avatar n tn the cough is never in my chest, just in this location. I can press my finger on the area and cause myself to cough. If I am eating something (especially salty foods) and swallow, if a grain of food gets on the area I start to cough. If I lay on my right side and have sinus drainage, I cough.
Avatar n tn I think I did too much though cause today my arm near my arm pit is really sore (it feels like sore muscles) and my neck muscle is sore too. It has been 10 days since my shot. The tingling and numbness has mostly gone away except in my feet now it's just muscle soreness....
Avatar f tn my bbs get super duper sore in the 2ww....well the cycles that I take clomid my bbs aren't sore AT ALL???? Here is what she had to say....hmmm I don't know because we always hear that it (clomid) causes them to get even more sore!!! So do you think the clomid is actually working??? Or do I need a higher dose.. I am on 50?? Well...sorry this is so long.
1554262 tn?1374243601 I stopped at a gas station to get some water, and had to wait in an extremely long (it seemed) line. So I now keep a bottle of water in the car at all times. I am glad to know that the cause is not a heart attack. Thanks for all your comments.
Avatar f tn It doesn't seem to be like its stemming from a dream or a nightmare, i just open my eyes at night and see these, things in the room with me. People in the corner, maggots, snakes, spiders, mice in the bed, even the ceiling caving in. It's really getting old. When I was single, it was just kind of funny. But now that I'm married, its awful. I try to pull my wife out of the bed to save her or cover her face with the pillow so the animals don't get her.
Avatar f tn I have convinced myself that I have everything from a brain tumor, to an anuerysm, to blood clots in my legs that will lead to a pulmonary embolism. Back in 2008 after my daughter was born, my legs were sore. So I went on WebMD and googled sore legs. (Worse thing you can ever do) well after reading all the sites I convinced myself I had blood clots in my legs due to pregnancy.
Avatar n tn My hands and feet are almost always cold (in fact, they are right now), and I fall in and out of relatively mild depression. I have been told that carrying the thalassemia trait has no obvious symptoms, but I've been poking around forums a little bit, and the symtoms I experience seem to be fairly common. I'm still looking for ways to lessen the intensity of these symptoms, but for me I've found that maintaining physical activity helps, as well as not oversleeping, or overeating.
162948 tn?1205256292 I spotted a little after having it put in and my abdomen was a little sore, but I have not have any spotting or bleeding of any kind since. It has been almost 2 years (about 22 months) since I had it put it and now my husband and I are wanting to have another baby. Part of me wants to have it taken out now in case it takes a little longer to conceive (we are not wanting to get pregnant right away), but if I take it out now I could get pregnant the first month too....
393685 tn?1425816122 Right now I have Hyperparathyroidism and will probably be having a parathyroidectomy in about 3 weeks. I have heart disease which resulted in a triple bypass in 07, hypothyroidism, CREST(a less aggressive form of scleroderma), fibromyalgia, controlled hypertension and thats the bulk of it. I use the trackers here and am just getting used to using the forums.
251922 tn?1193786078 My progress so far is 14 1/2 lbs in 18 days. I weighed in at 168.5 this morning. I know how some of you feel about getting frustrated. I was stuck at 170.5 for 3 days about 3 days ago. I finally dropped 1/2 a pound on the 4th day though. If I hadn't had a colon treatment scheduled on that 3rd day I probably wouldn't have dropped that 4th day. I've been taking the Dr. Schulze for 3 days but no results yet.
