Yes, it can be applied on other parts of the body but be sure it's prescribed by a dermatologist. It's important to note that the type of skin conditions determines treatment.

WALKING SITTING AND POTTY TRAINING ADVICE NEEDED !!!!
  • Best Answer
I normally recommend that potty training should start at 2 years of age, when the child is ready. So please your child is still young. In some climes, potty training a child less than two years old is termed child abuse. Please don't let people's claim of potty training as early as 6 months deceive you.You have not done anything wrong. Wait till he/she is older. All the best.

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
