4 year old having reddish rash in the corner of the mouth, swollen spot on the tongue. Reason?

Hi, my 4 ur old son has a slight red rash (?) on skin near the corner of his mouth and the corner of the top lip by redness is swollen just in one spot. Favoring other side of mouth and rubbing his shirt to his mouth, like trying to wipe it. I ask if pain and he says not too much. Took away his nuk yesterday & gave it back tonight for bedtime. Do you know of any cause? Very scary. He s eating, drinking & sleeping fine and very healthy thank God.

Welcome to Heathcare Magic Forum,

Nothing to worry about. This seems like a reaction, probably alergic reaction to may be mosquito bite or something like that. It should get better soon. Apply coconut oil over that. If it gets worse needs a dermatologist consult, else should be fine in a day or 2. Take care.
