hi my 15month old has swollen gums which have been bleeding. Her breath is really bad and it looks as though there is a blister behind her top teeth or maybe food stuck there? I cant get close enough to her mouth with her tooth brush as she is in too mmuch pain
Understanding your concern. As per your query your child have symptoms of swollen gums and bleeding which could be due to infection in oral cavity and it seems to be due to poor oral hygiene and compromised immunity of child making susceptible to infections. Need not to worry about it. Maintain proper oral hygiene by brushing and flossing daily. Take antimicrobial mouthwash rinses such as listerine. Take antibiotic such as Azithromycin to prevent further infection. Visit pedodontist once and get it examined and go for scaling and root planing of teeth. Drink plenty of water. Avoid giving sticky food such as chocolates, toffees to child.
Hope your concern has been resolved.
Get Well Soon.
Best Wishes, Dr. Harry Maheshwari
