My daughter has been getting painful sores on her gums whenever she has to write long papers or take tests. Can stress be causing this?

Yes. Get her mouth checked by a dentist to make sure and advise on treatment.

Stress can lead to the eruption of ulcers, which though innocent can be painful. In order to eliminate any other possible cause for the ulcer, its best to get it checked out by a dentist. Stress ulcers can be managed by remedies like Gengiel.
