    Hi Mamam,

    You posted find but it may take time for an expert to respond. If the situation remains and you are concerned at all, please contact your daughter's pediatrician.

    Hi Maman,

    Unfortunately I cannot diagnose online and would need more information to even begin to develop a preliminary clinical diagnosis.

    Therefore, I strongly suggest that you bring your daughter to her physician. This is the most logical next step as they can rule out any systemic disease (not very likely but should be done) and they know your child.

    If your pediatrician cannot address your concerns you should take your daughter to a pediatric dentist, not a general dentist, as they will be more knowledgeable about oral lesions occuring in children.

    I hope this helps!

    Dr. Gwen Cohen Brown
