N's pediatrician gave us a prescription for Magic Mouth Wash. Insurance wouldn't cover it, but I happily handed over the $20 to take it home. The stuff really does work wonders. Since I've been using this to swab N's mouth periodically, she is MUCH happier.
The pharmacist mixes together specific (seemingly random) ingredients (for example: Benedryl, lidocaine, etc.) and the result really is magic. N responded immediately. It has been a great relief for myself, as well, to know we're able to lessen her pain at least that much.
