6w5d newborn is not dehydrated however soft spot feels a little bit sunken. She's alert no other signs of dehydration. How sunken should it be? ER?
Not much: If a child is otherwise well, taking normal feeds and urinating routinely without vomiting, diarrhea, fevers, etc, a slight depression of the fontanelle ("soft spot") need not be cause for alarm. Unless something else of concern is happening, this is not a reason to visit the ER. A pediatrician could safely confirm that this is normal during regular hours. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Abcesses: It sounds like you may have an abcess. The fact that your tooth is discolored is consistent with this finding. The tooth may be non-vital ("dead"), and the pain and sponginess may be due to the abcess enlarging and the pus attempting to exit from under the tissues that cover the hard palate. Contact your dds as soon as possible and keep the area clean. Warm salt water rinses should help today. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
3 mos baby teething signs 3 white bumps like milia in same area on top gum & unconsolable, tooth?
Call or page the Dr.: A 3 month-old baby who is "unconsolable" is fussy for a reason. If the baby had cold symptoms or has fever, an infection is likely. If truly not able to be consoled, the baby should be seen at the emergency room to rule out meningitis. If just "fussier than usual", parents can check the baby with no clothes on, give tylenol, (acetaminophen) give a warm bath, give a feeding, and if still fussy, go to urgent care. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

These questions need to be answered before a diagnosis can be rendered. See a local dentist who can actually examine your daughter. No pain does not mean no problem. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Small raised bleb hard palate 6 months white pimple colour sore when rub over it not grown numerous upper broken teeth 28 years old smoker.?
Abscessed tooth: The most likely cause is an abscessed tooth, since you remarked that you have multiple broken teeth, it is probable that the infection in the bone has found a small exit through the gum tissue, which is called a sinus tract.
