Welcome to just answer.
I am Dr vazsv pediatrician here to help you.I completely understand your concern and I would try my best to help you.From your description it looks like your son has an oral thrush which is a local fungal infection. The doctors have prescribed Daktarin to treat it..the medicine acts well and will start resolving the symptoms in 2 to 3 days.
You need not panic. He's not able to eat or drink due to the burning sensation in the mouth. It will settle down with the gel and he will be normal within a week.
