Awww, poor little guy! I'd take him to see the doc right away! He must be so miserable. It must be difficult for him to eat too.

I just called daycare (he's at school today-I had a meeting at work this morning but came home early so I can take him in) and they said it's a little better than when we dropped him off this morning, but he's still crying when he eats and obviously in pain. She suggested finding something with a numbing agent in it.

Poor baby. I was going to suggest Lansinoh too. My DH has a bad habit of picking at his cuticles and I will often use that to help them heal faster. The silly guy picks at them again, but oh well. I hope it's not infected and I hope your little boy is feeling much better now.

My friend's son's lips do that because he picks at them. Poor baby, I hope he can get better soon!

steph do you use fish oil with the kids? it looks like he needs some omega 3's to help heal his skin form the inside out. i really like carlsons & nordic naturals...they make kid friendly liquid drops, or flavored chewables.

Looking at the close up of his mouth, it looks to me as though he might have impetigo or a staph infection because of the little pustules near his mouth. Hope you get some answers soon!
