Hi doc,

My 2yr old complains of mouth pains and points to the tougue.she hasnt eaten anything solid the whole day and her tougue is white.what could be the problem?
Another question is wat is the best mosquito repellent to use,ive tried a number of them and they dnt seem to work.

Thanks doc.

It is possible that your little girl is developing a mouth infection due to a virus.It is known as herpes stomatitis.If she is not eating or drinking she may become dehydrated in this hot weather.She should be seen by a doctor.
A good mosquito repellant is Peaceful Sleep.You can either use the pads or the liquid in the special plug-in device.
