Discussions that mention motrin

Coxsackie virus can cause mouth sores. It can actually produce a number of different symptoms. My son had it when he was only a year old and the only symptom he had was the sore in his mouth which in turn made him really uncomfortable. He didn't want to eat, had a hard time sleeping etc.

It's pretty much like a cold, it just has to run it's course. Tylenol or Children's Motrin may help with the pain.
