Lump In The Mouth Of A Child Aged 9 Months?
Tonight, my friend’s son, 9 months old, is crying and continues to know now that in his mouth there is a black lump as big as a pebble … what kind of disease is that … thanks
Hi Choiri .. Thank you for the question.
Lumps in the mouth can occur due to several things, for example:
Micocele / lump that results from a blockage in the salivary glands
Fibroma / enlargement in connective tissue
Bacterial or viral infections
Hemangioma / enlargement of blood vessels
To find out for sure the exact cause of the lump, it is necessary to check directly by a pediatrician and if necessary then the doctor can also consult a dentist. Check it especially if the lump gets bigger, there is fever, the child is fussy and restless, it becomes difficult to eat and drink. While what can also be done is: keep giving the child food and drink as usual, keep the child's oral hygiene, if your child has a fever you can give paracetamol according to the dose.
