Common issue: Mouth ulcers in a 3 yo are usually a viral process. They can be the initial infection of what would later become cold sores. They can be from a variety of gut viruses that just started with the oral cavity in this instance. The cited blood count is non-specific, and rather normal for age. Treatment is supportive until they self heal. The focus is on maintaining hydration.
