What's wrong with my sons mouth? Wolfskrieger 17 kids; Morgan Hill, California 1564 posts

He has had this rash on and off the past couple days. He hasn't really had any new foods or anything but the weather has been a bit weird either cold or hot but nothing extreme. It is also kind of bumpy. Should I take him in to be seen or is there home remedies I can try?
Thanks for the replies in advance.

Paci by chance?

It almost looks like a yeast rash. My DD gets them, but in her diaper area. If it doesn't clear up I would call the pedi on Monday.

Does he use a pacifier?

No paci's but he's still breastfeeding. I live on a ranch so it's possible he just gets too dirty when we are outside but we mostly play with water so I'm not sure.

Yes actually he has been playing with my moms truck keys recently.. That could be it. I'll make sure to keep them more out of reach and see if that works lol

i'm not saying that as a definite bc i'm not a dr, but it's a possibility! hope it's just that and not something more serious. i'd call the dr still and let them know and see it and see what they think. good luck!
