Hi.
Thanks for the query..

As per your complain it seems that a blister over the tongue can be a canker sore while pus filled lump under the chin can be due to bacterial infection and as it has already crusted you need not to worry about it again..

As far as gum bleeding is concerned it is common in the teething phase due to inflammation of the gums when the teeth tend to cut out from the gums making it sore and bleed on slight stimulation..

Do not worry as when the teeth will erupt the the bleeding will stop..
As of now you can use an ultra soft toothbrush to clean her teeth..
Do cool compresses over the gums..
Give her chilled teething rings to bite on..
Give her soft and cool diet..

Hope this helps..

Regards.
