My 15months old has her lower gums swollen. I gave her paracetamol. Will that reduce d pains and the swollen gums. someone said I should use garlic and vegetable oil. pls, help me.
Ma, giving Paracetamol to your baby to soothe pain is okay but won't heal the swollen gum.
Ma, do not use any garlic or vegetable oil.
Take your baby to the pediatrician.

You need to take your child to the Paediatric Dentist for proper check and treatment. There are many things that can cause swollen or bleeding gums. Either the child's teeth are not properly cleaned or the child has a bacterial or viral infection e.g Herpetic stomatogingivitis, don't mind the grammar. Whatever the case may be he needs to have a proper check and treated accordingly
