My daughter went to the dentist yesterday for a filling. This morning, her bottom lip is all swollen, big time with a huge blister on the left inside part of her lip then there is two smaller cut like blisters below it. Who do I call, her pediatrician or her dentist? My husband said to wait and see if it goes down. She had Strep throat two weeks ago and they mentioned she might have mono but they didn't test her. Her pediatrician said that there's nothing you can do about mono, it has to run its course, and that it's actually in some ways a blessing if a kid gets it at 7 year old instead of when they're older. Anyway, is this related? Or, is it from the dentist? allergic reaction? I bought campho phenique. I don't know what to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
