Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Irritation due to sharp scratches (including the tip of a straw) in the back of the palate (palate mole) can be a dangerous condition or not. In general, if the bleeding that your child experiences only occurs in a short time and does not come out in large quantities, often this condition is not dangerous. But indeed, this excessive wound in the palate mole often leaves discomfort quite disturbing, so that it will also affect the child's appetite, and make the child more fussy.
You can first overcome the condition of your child with the following steps:
Don't give children food and drinks that are too hot and too hard
Diligently brush your child's teeth, and teach your child to rinse with salt solution
Avoid children from putting dangerous objects in their mouths (including straws)
If the child is fussy, soothe him by hugging him or singing a hum that makes him comfortable
However, if you find your child's mouth bleeding quite a lot, especially to cause your child to experience extreme pain, unable to eat, or drink at all, you should immediately check your child to the doctor or the nearest pediatrician to be treated the best. It is feared, the injury he had previously caused a deep wound in his palate that requires further treatment from a doctor, such as the administration of certain drugs or suturing.
Hope this helps ...
