Cola inked of pain in teeth, over lapping layer of gum, blood stains, difficulty chewing. What is going on?

Hi, my 5 year old just cola inked of pain in her teeth . When I checked, I noticed an overlapping layer of her gum sitting on her last tooth . The premolars at the very back. It had some blood stains on it and I was worried she would be having difficulties with chewing. I asked how long she had been feeling the pain and she said this morning. Please tell me what could be worm Ng. Is this just an inflammation or something else and what should I do.

hello and welcome to HCM forum,
i would be glad to answer your query,
I would like you to know that the soft tissue flap that is covering your daughters tooth is because her permanent molars below the gum tissue flap are about to erupt, once they erupt completely,the flap and the swelling associated with it will disappear.
If the tooth is hurting too much then i will advise you to take her to a dentist but if not, then warm saline rinses(3-4 times/day) will help relief the symptoms temporarily.

i hope i answered your query,
i wish you good health.
