Even before you spot a rash, you may notice that your child is complaining of mouth pain. The lesions caused by hand-foot-mouth disease can be very painful and children often complain that their mouth or some part of their mouth is hurting. Mouth pain can be caused by a variety of factors such as burning of the palette, cavities, biting the tongue or cheek and getting a new tooth. If your child is complaining about the mouth and seems unwell, consider hand-foot-mouth disease as a potential cause.
