When Children Bite

It is common for young children to bite themselves or others. Often this is because the child has not yet learned to express himself in words, and the biting becomes a way to make contact and show emotions. Young children do not bite to be mean or troublesome. They often have close feelings and can be impulsive. If your child bits, it is important that you mark immediately, but calmly. A child who has been bitten rarely needs care.

Blisters and Ulcers in the Mouth

Most people sometimes have blisters, ulcers or other changes in the mouth's mucosa. It may be due to some infection or injury to the mouth, but often the cause of the trouble is unknown. Mouth dryness over a longer period of time and use of certain drugs increase the risk of getting blisters and ulcers in the mouth.
