Q.

Teething

My baby girl is now 16 months. A month and a half ago on her top right side her gum was swollen. I would call it something like a " gumboil" . It feels like a blister with water in it. It started hanging over her gum so I took her to GP. He said not to worry it''s nothing don''t apply anything it will go away by itself. Somehow she scrached it and it bled but it did go away. Right after this she cut her molar there. Now there is another " gumboil"  on top left side. Does not seem to bother her as much as first one. Is this due to molars or a coincidence?

This is again due to another molar coming through.
