OTC: The choice of medicine, whether prescription or over the counter, depends on what's wrong. As there are multiple conditions that can cause oral lesions and pain, it is important that your 3 year old sees General Dentist or specialist Pedodontist to make differential diagnosis and then treatment recommendations.
