Teething In Infants Aged 2 Months?
Good afternoon ….. This is my daughter ,,,, my child is 3 months old, the upper part of my gums is right and left, and the lower gums are small hard lumps in white, and there are about 5-6, like teeth, The lump has been around since my child was 2 months old, and now the lump is getting bigger, what I want to ask, isn’t that tooth or what? Not dangerous for my child? Thank you 🙂
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
To be able to clearly know what lumps are in your baby's gums, of course you have to do a direct examination first. White bumps on the baby's gums can indeed be caused by teeth that will grow but can also be caused by keratin filled cysts called epstein's pearl (if there is in the roof of the mouth) or bohn nodule (if there are in the gums). If it's a tooth, then it's certainly not dangerous, sometimes teeth can appear faster in some babies. When caused by keratin, this condition is also harmless. These cysts containing keratin will disappear by themselves in a few weeks to several months.
To be sure, you can check your baby directly to the pediatrician so that you can see white lumps in the child's mouth.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
