Hi, please help with an explanation for my question. I have a cousin who is currently 6 years 9 months. He had swollen cheeks. His previous condition was that he had a cold and cough. And also accompanied by white spots on the mouth. Is the swelling on the cheeks caused by white spots on the mouth wall? Thank you
