    Is it only her neck that's doing this? Is she doing anything else that seems off? And last but not least how old is she?

    I' m in same boat, and am scared too. I hear that it goes away after about 4 weeks unless its inside their mouth which is not good in a bad way :( I hope both our girls get better soon :bow
