My 12-yr-old daughter woke up two weeks ago with a mouth full of sores (large canker types), swollen lips and swollen eyes. Dr gave medicine that day. Next morning she awoke with bloodshot eyes with green and yellow discharge (later diagnosed as bacterial conjunctivitis). That day she also started running a fever of about 102° - 103°. We took her to the Children's Hospital and she was there for 5 days (that was one week ago that she was released). They tested for Adnovirus and every other virus out there but everything came back negative. They checked for Kawasaki disease and Steven Johnsons and nothing. They finally chalked it up to a "wierd virus", which I don't buy. She has lost nearly 9 pounds in 14 days (she was 100 lbs the first day at the Drs) and still has very painful sores in her mouth for which she used a 'magic mouthwash' and hydrocodone every 4 hours. So at this point she is either in pain or sleeping. Any help would be appreciated.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
