| | swollen lip - what do I do?
Hello - my son (7) bit into a stale piece of candy from a gumball machine and broke a molar in 3 parts - they ended up removing the tooth (baby one). His cheek was swollen from the novecain but it has gone down but now his lip is swollen (just the lower part, about half of it) on the side where the work was done. The top part of the lip is white and almost feels like rubber. There are no blisters, it looks almost like he was bitten by a spider - the white ends right by where the molar was pulled. What can I do for him? It's been 30 hours and it's still puffy and white. Thanks.
