won't go away.

It's been there for about 2.5 weks now and I assumed that her tooth had gone into her lip and then it had formed a blister and then she kept chewing/playing with it.

However it hasn't gone away and it's getting bigger. It's now about half a cm (about the size of a small tooth) and looks like it is filled with blood/fluid.

She asked if the dr could get it out today. I don't know if it's sore or not.

Does anyone have any experience of this or have any idea what it might be.

Should I go to gp (prob have to wait about a week for app), go to A&E or go to pharmacy (we are in Scotland so they can treat minor ailments at pharmacy).

Any thoughts??

Go first to your pharmacy, if they can't help, go to your GP. Not to A&E, it's not an emergency.

Ok will go to pharmacy tomorrow morning.

Any idea what it could be though? Nothing sinister huh?
