From the information you have conveyed, there is a wound in the area under the child's lip, whether it is round or oval, or irregular, and it has been going on for about 4 days, so this condition should be carried out directly to your family doctor or your pediatrician. . Without direct examination, the cause of this complaint cannot be known, so the right medicine cannot be given. Thus, it is necessary to determine the cause in advance by examining a doctor.
Several possible causes of complaints that give a similar picture, can also be caused by:
1. inflammation of the skin
2. skin infections
3. virus infection
4. Chronic wounds
Each of the above possibilities has their own treatment, so that by determining the cause, treatment will be provided by your family doctor or pediatrician.
All you need to do for now is avoid getting the wound from coming in contact with water, until your doctor provides further treatment instructions.
That's the information we can convey.
