Suggest treatment for gum pain in a child
Looks like due to erupting molar only..
Yes, as per the pictures you have attached it looks like the erupting permanent molar tooth that has not torn through the gums till now..
You can continue doing ice packs but along with it you can give Acetaminophen or Paracetamol and apply Lidocaine gel over the area but be cautious to apply a little amount and only over the sore area and ask your son to spit out the saliva and do not swallow..
If the pain does not get better or persist then consult a Dentist and get an x ray done..
Hope this helps..
It depends on exactly what is the position of the tooth..
If it is just under the gum then it can break through the gum in about a week to 10 days.
Hope this helps..
