Hi, sorry if this is a bit daft, just not quite sure what - if anything - I should be doing.
DS 2.3 fell off a chair and hit his face after lunch, and he was bleeding quite a bit from his mouth. After about 5 mins it seemed to have pretty much stopped, so I've carried on and put him to nap thinking that would be better than dragging him to GP/Walk-in centre.
I'm not very good at knowing what the inside of a top lip is supposed to look like, but it seems as if he might have torn the connecting thin bit of skin between the top gum and top lip.
Does anybody have any experience of this, and whether I should just let it heal by itself, or get it checked out?
Calpol later if it is sore. DS (4) fell off a swimg in the playground a few weeks ago and cut his lip and inside his mouth. No need for the doctor, but it did sweel up a bit in the evening before bedtime, and I gave him calpol.... he was fine, swelling down by the morning and everything good as gold now.
