2 year old has a white pimple on jaw under tongue. Has cold/cough now and has been scratching around his neck and back of legs. What is this pimple?

MD and DDS: First have your child seen by your pediatrician or family physician, who can evaluate the entire situation. If your physician feels that he\she should also be seen by a pedodontist (pediatric dentist), that would be a good idea also.

My advise is to visit an oral surgeon or oral pathologist very, very soon for a thorough examination of this area! ...Read more
