Caden has been complaining about a sore throat for a couple of days and when I looked, it was covered in canker like sores. We are about to leave for Canada tomorrow so I wanted to get him checked out before we left. Turns out he (and everyone else) has coxsackievirus. They have the herpangina type with sores in the mouth and throat. Caden got it the worst. I have been giving them tums to coat their throats, maalox, benadryl, motrin and lots of ice cream.
Poor little guys are just miserable and you just have to wait it out.
He loves to swim, but just sat on the steps looking pathetic because his throat hurt so much.
