What is wrong?

My eight month old has four teeth and decided to use them on me about a week and a half ago, biting and ripping away at the same time. Now, the pain is worse than ever, with redness and swelling... I fear an infection. How, though, considering she didn't break any skin? (From what I saw, at least.) What could be the problem?

  • It could possibly be a bruise under the skin. Or a blood blister of sorts.
