Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
Please do not panic.I can understand your concern.
Please look for any cuts on the tongue or in the oral cavity specially under the tongue and the gums.
Ask your child to regularly rinse his/her mouth with a medicated mouthwash.
Consult your doctor if the problem persists.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.
