If inflamed pulp, the pain in the tooth arises paroxysmal, not only during the duration of the stimuli (during a meal), but at any time, including at night. Sometimes the pain is constant aching in nature.

The child may feel well and do not show any symptoms until tries to eat, but after several sucking motions he tearfully spits out the nipple or the mother's nipple. The inside of his mouth red with white spots on the tongue and the inner surface of the cheeks. The spots look like drops of milk, remaining in the mouth of the child after the feeding. To distinguish them, gently touch white dots with your finger or with the spoon. Drops of milk alone, and spots thrush will remain in place.

Unlike herpes stomatitis, in this case, a child only 1-2 ulcers and the general state of normal, only lymph nodes in the neck may be slightly increased. Plague is a defect mucous membrane in the form of white or yellow circle around the gray center. This place becomes very painful.
Sometimes the reason of their appearance is unclear, although often the ulcers occur as a result of injuries mucous membranes of the mouth: acute bone in food, biting cheeks, etc. - all this can injure the mucous membrane and lead to the formation of ulcers.
