Hello Dear,
First of all dont panic and be relaxed.I will try to give my best advice regarding your problem. I have thoroughly gone through the things you have mentioned. These ulcers heal without any treatment in 1-2 weeks.
Here I am suggesting few things for the fast relief of your daughter.
-USE OF MOUTHWASH (chlorhexidine gluconate) twice daily for 15 days.Do not give her any thing to eat and drink for approx 30 after using gel or mouthwash.
Most probably the symptoms will start subsiding soon. If not please consult dental surgeon for further investigations.
Hope this will help you.
Thank You Take Care
