11.34 Nursing Sore Mouth

Nursing Sore Mouth.

NURSING women sometimes suffer terribly with this complaint. It begins with a scalding sensation upon the tongue, a pink color in the roof of the mouth, and a hot, watery discharge from the mouth. After a few days, small ulcers appear on the tongue, and in the throat. Costiveness is generally present; but when the ulceration extends to the bowels, diarrhea occurs. It comes to an end upon weaning the child.

Treatment. To relieve costiveness, give some gentle cathartic (12), (15), (25), (34), (36).
Iron in some of its forms and combinations is highly necessary (61), (71), (73), (349).
Gargles will frequently do much good (227), (229), (230), (235), (243), (244), (347), (360).
The diet must be simple, nourishing, and digestible, consisting of stale bread, tender beefsteak, broths, etc.
