Red, raw and painful areas on the sides and under tounge of 7 year old
debvesely posted:
My 7 1/2 yo has painful red and raw areas on the sides and under his tounge and on one area of his lower gum. There are a couple of small red spots on the top of his tounge too. He has not been sick or on any new new medications. He does, however, have lower jaw teeth errupting and complains of soreness in his lower jaws. Could the lower teeth coming in be causing the irritated raw areas on his tounge?
