My 2 year old has had ulcers in her mouth, on her gums and tongue for the past week. Now her gums are starting to swell and on the top where they are most swollen you can barely see her teeth and they bleed easliy when touched. I went with her to the hospital last friday and they just told me it was a viral infection and that it would heal on its own. Im just concerned because it looks pretty bad and painful ( she cant eat any solid foods but desperately wants to) so i would just like to know if anyone has gone through this with their child and how long will it take for it to go away?
