Hi there, my 15 year old daughter experiences extreme fatigue and mouth sores every February through April. Ulcers appear under her tounge and she has rash-like appearance and peeling on the inside of her cheeks. Both the ulcers and "rash" are very painful. She has had the ulcers and rash biopsied with normal results. The fatigue is so extreme that she has trouble fuctioning. She has been put on anti-depressants (Prozac last year, Lexapro this year) with no effect on the fatigue or ulcers. We are both very confused about what's going on and the only suggestion we have been given from the doctors (primary doctor, dentist, ENT, oral surgeon, pathologist) is that it could be a virus, which we thought was rediculous until it cleared up. I assumed they must have been right about the virus until the symptoms returned at exactly the same time of year. Does anyone have any ideas of what could causing this?
