I tried to see the nearest doctor to check, given a fever-lowering drug and canker sores, but the fever lasted for 3 days, I changed to another doctor, but the same was given a fever-reducing drug and canker sores and antibiotics, the fever subsided, but for the thrush was getting worse. The sprue that my child is suffering from is full of his mouth from the walls of the cheeks, gums, lips, tongue to the inside. The peak is 2 days, every morning I wake up, my mouth is always bleeding and the amount of blood is not small, the mouth is smelly and the blood is flowing very much, what is the illness that my child is experiencing and what are the indications, yes, good medicine for my child, because I have 3x Change doctor to check the condition of your child.

We understand your complaints and concerns. Thrush is also called stomatitis, which is inflammation of the lining of the oral mucosa. Stomatitis can be caused by various causes, one of the most frequent causes is viral and fungal infections. Herpes virus and hand, foot, mouth disease (HFMD) diseases often cause complaints of canker sores. Viral infections easily attack young children because of a declining immune system. Other factors that can also cause thrush in children are the procedure for brushing the wrong teeth, biting the tongue, lack of intake of vitamins C and B and heredity. The mouth is one part of the body that contains a lot of germs, so that there are few wounds that will easily develop. Although canker sores are not a serious life-threatening disease, the existence of this condition will be very disturbing. Children will feel pain, fuss and loss of appetite. Here are some types of canker sores in the mouth:
Aphtousa stomatitis: most often occurs in infants and children, due to being bitten before
Herpetic stomatitis: canker sores due to herpes virus infection
Oral thrush / oral candidiasis: fungal infections of the mouth. It often occurs due to long-term use of antibiotics and poor oral hygiene.
Hand Foot and Mouth Disease (HFMD): lay people call it Singapore flu. Thrush in the mouth accompanied by symptoms of reddish rash on the hands and feet
Related to complaints that your child is experiencing, needs to be re-evaluated the cause of canker sores. Often the cause of thrush in children is a viral infection or due to trauma to the mouth, both caused by being bitten and using a toothbrush that is not true. Thrush can heal by itself within 7-10 days. But it can take longer than that depending on the child's immune system. If you have already checked your child, try to wait for the drug's reaction to canker sores for the next few days. If in more than 2 weeks canker sores have not improved as well, do not hesitate to exercise control back to your nearest pediatrician. The following treatment and management options and prevention can be done at home:
Diligently clean your mouth at least 2x a day
Brush your teeth carefully
Gargle rinse with an antiseptic
Avoid fatigue and stress in children
Give adequate rest to the child
Give soft foods like porridge
Expand vegetables and fruit, because they contain lots of vitamins c, B2 and B5 which can prevent canker sores
Give more juice intake
Ice cream can be given because the cold temperature and texture can help reduce pain and provide a sense of comfort
Give vitamin supplements containing iron, zinc, B complex and vitamin C.
So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
