Suggest Treatment For Canker Sore Between Lips And Gum

My 18 month old has major canker sore between her lip and gums. Some history....she s had bloodwork come back indicating a metabolic disorder (but not bad enough for diagnosis), she has breath holding spells/seizure, and recently fell and had to have a tooth removed. Is any of this related to her canker sore? The dentist just gave me a numbing agent to help her eat and wants to see her in a week.....

Thanks for using Health Care magic.

Read your query.

The stress related to any of this episode of breath holding and injury may have causes the canker sore ,as the major cause for them is stress .

I would advice you to continue the gel given by the dentist ,as it will take around a week for it to heal.
Avoid anything spicy for the baby.

Have her to eat a nutritious diet to boost the immunity.

Hope this was helpful.
Thanks and regards.
