Should i give my 3 year old ibuprofen for a fat lip upper lip swollen due to trip and fall, inside is bruised like blood blister

Even if it is completely harmless, if it gets in the way of her teeth every time she takes a bite, it will continue to get irritated. ...Read more

If you want it to heal, avoid doing that. A blood blister is a superficial bruise. the tissue was hurt and now it's trying to heal. ...Read more
