When my daughter turned 6 months she got her first tooth. Since then she's been rubbing her bottom tooth against the bottom of her tongue causing an ulcer. It's painful and sometimes she gets it to bleed. There isn't much on the internet about Riga-Fede Disease. I'm hoping there is another parent out there who can help me. My husband had it when he was little too. My daughter was born perfectly healthy and still is. We took Alesha to her pediatric dentist and they filed her tooth. It has helped, but she's still able to open the wound and it bleeds and she cries. I've cried with her too I feel helpless. I'm wondering if there is a cream or something on the market I can give her to help her. Any help is greatly appreciated.
