I'm sorry to hear about your daughter's tongue. Does it look like a possible allergic reaction or more of an irritated swelling? I would think that if she is sucking a great deal and with force on her fingers, it could irritate her tongue. By the way, I'm not a medical professional, so please keep that in mind. I think that if she is still in pain, you should call her pediatrician and/or pediatric dentist for an examination, in case there is another underlying cause creating this concern. Here is the WebMD Tongue Problems Basics for you to look over and consider other ideas. Please keep us posted on how she is doing! Take care.View Thread
According to this WebMD Scar Treatment article , "Keloid scars. These scars are the result of an overly aggressive healing process. These scars extend beyond the original injury. Over time, a keloid scar may affect mobility. Possible treatments include surgical removal, or injections with steroids. Smaller keloids can be treated using cryotherapy (freezing therapy using liquid nitrogen). You can also prevent keloid formation by using pressure treatment or gel pads with silicone when you sustain an injury. Keloid scars most often occur in Blacks."
Please check out the article above as well as speak with your doctor and see if she suggests any other forms of treatment. I wish you the best! Take care.View Thread

I hope that you start feeling better soon because this seems like a lot of pain to handle for 3 weeks. "In most cases, the recovery period lasts only a few days," according to the WebMD Wisdom Tooth Extraction Overview .
Personally, the pain from my wisdom teeth extraction was for about a week. I also have problems with grinding my teeth in my sleep at night. When I sleep without my professionally-fitted night guard, my teeth, gums, jaw and head can keep me in massive pain for the whole next day. If you are not using anything, I would definitely speak with your dentist about finding some treatment for relief.
Are you using any form of treatment for grinding your teeth at this time? Where exactly do you feel your pain in the morning and throughout the day? Please keep us posted.View Thread

How long has this white bump been on your gums? Does it look like a sore or do you recall any injury to this site? I think that it will be hard to determine exactly what the concern is without you having an examination. If it is a canker sore , then the mouth will usually heal the area within about 10 days if it is left undisturbed. I would definitely see a dental professional about this concern if it does not show improvement after this amount of time. Please make sure to use proper oral hygiene daily and keep us posted.
