    If it's not chicken pox or something like that, she may be deficient in zinc or could have gotten a little nick on her tongue which can get irritated and turn into a blister. Really, could be a myriad of reasons, but if she seems happy and settled and still eating, I would just keep an eye on her to see that more don't develop.

    Hand, foot and mouth? Tons of info out there to search. If it is - nothing really that you can do, perhaps a little bonjella.

    I saw an allergist when I was a late teen and he wanted me to massively change my diet and one reason was because I had mouth ulcers. I disagreed and for years kept track of my mouth ulcers more carefully. For 2 - 3 years I ONLY got a mouth ulcer from trauma - I bit my tongue/cheek, or scratched my cheek with food (eg. crusty bread). Since then once or twice I've had a virus and got a couple of ulcers.

    So, I would suggest that most likely she bit her tongue or has a mild virus. One ulcer, even on the tongue, that is small & not worrying her is not a major issue. If she gets more ulcers or is clearly unwell then see a doctor.
