Customer Question

My grandson of 7months presented with a large swelling in his right cheek
about 3 weeks ago, he was given an antibiotic which has not helped the swelling to go down as we were expecting it to. There is still a hard lump in his mouth. The Dr at the scanning department this morning said he suspected that it was necrotic tissue, and has referred him to an ENT.
Can you please inform me of what this could be caused by and what treatment would be given

Hello,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,

Shantal
