Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The medicine you mentioned contains generic borax glycerin 10% and is useful as a pain reliever in wounds and / or swelling in the mouth and throat, as a mouth wash for unconscious people, and for nipple sores. The borax in this drug acts as a deterrent to putrefaction caused by bacteria and also to reduce itching.
This drug has a sweet taste and is quite safe for babies. How to use it is to gargle or rub it, and it is not to be swallowed. If ingested, especially in large quantities, it can cause side effects such as vomiting, diarrhea, and skin rashes. In the case of your child, if only two drops these side effects should not appear, but in the future, you should give this drug by waiting for the baby to fall asleep, and apply this medicine to a clean cotton swab, then the cotton swab is incised on the canker sores.
If you are still confused about something, don't hesitate to return to your child's checkup to avoid misunderstandings and unwanted things. So, hopefully it answers your question.
