It can be very painful to eat.Infection has been excluded as a possible cuase here so it is most likely that your son still finds it very painful to eat.Offer him liquids which should be cold as warm or hot liquids will be more painful for him now.Jelly and ice cream is an old favourite at this time. Give him something for pain such as Nurofen for children as it also reduces inflammation.
