Ayla’s ulcers have spread to her top lip now and she’s so miserable!
It looks so painful and it’s certainly not attractive.
I was really hoping the cream the doctor prescribed would have worked by now, and I’m crossing my fingers it kicks in soon!
Hand Foot and Mouth has been ruled out as the cause, and it’s been put down to Ayla simply being run down.
She certainly hasn’t had a good run, poor baby, but I am so lucky and feel so fortunate that Ayla is a happy, easy going little trooper.

Poor Baby Ayla’s mouth is riddled with ulcers!
When I picked her up from day care they said she’d spent most of the day crying, and when I saw my baby girl with a red swollen bottom lip and drool running down her chin like a tap I knew it wasn’t teething.
After consulting with my personal physician (mum) I decided to brave the potential tears and take a look in Ayla’s mouth.
Her WHOLE bottom lip was covered by two massive blisters.
So, off to the doctors we went, to find out what on earth was happening.
The doctor diagnosed them as ulcers but he was shocked at the severity of them. He prescribed us a soothing ointment that should clear them up in a couple of days.
So for now it hurts whenever Ayla eats, when she drinks, when anything touches face.
