Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The impact that is hard enough in the gum area can certainly cause injury. Depending on the mechanism and severity of the impact, these injuries are minor, but they can also be dangerous. It seems that peeling gums, if they are small and do not cause profuse bleeding, are generally not dangerous. This condition usually gets better without requiring special treatment.
However, you need to be vigilant if you find peeling gums that are large enough to cause profuse bleeding and are difficult to stop. It is feared that this heavy bleeding can cause your child to lose a lot of blood and experience anemia. It could also be that this peeling wound, if not properly maintained for hygiene, will become infected, causing pus, swelling, pain, and bad breath.
If this condition is what your child is experiencing, you can take him directly to the doctor or dentist. Usually, with direct evaluation, the doctor can determine whether the condition is mild, or dangerous. If the peeling occurs is large enough, the doctor may perform sutures to close the wound. However, if it is small, chances are that no special handling needs to be done.
At home, you can do the following steps:
Calm your child
Teach him to gargle and get rid of saliva mixed with blood, you can also use a salt solution
Give him food that is easy to digest (soft or soup) first, not too hot, not too cold
Avoid giving drugs carelessly without a doctor's advice
Give the child the understanding not to hold or peel the peeling gum
Hope it helps ..
