Hi. One of my daughter has a purple spot on her tongue. It looks like a bruise. SHe has been sucking her thumb a lot and she is teething and putting many things into her mouth. Do you think she coyuld have scratched it? Has anyone seen anything like this?

I just noticed the same thing on my ds yesterday!!! I think he's teething (drooling allot and puts everything into his mouth!) I'm thinking maybe he clamped down on his tongue while trying to such his thumb???

I called the local public health nurse and she said that she has never heard of anything like it, but since it is not accompanied by fever or anything I shouldn't worry unless it doesn't go away. Jen, I'll keep you posted.

Yes, keep me posted.... I noticed that my sons in not as purple has it was yesterday... so maybe he did just "bite" his tongue??

I think she bit her tongue too. No teeth and already doing damage. Great!!!

It has faded today. Just a pre-tooth bite.
