Sounds like an abscess or gum boil I’m suffering one at the moment, I would see the dentist and see if you can get an earlier appointment, my abscess started suddenly on Saturday afternoon and is quite painful, hence why I am up now to take yet more ibuprofen. It may burst then you will have some relief
Hi I have a lump top on the outside of gum near cheek it appeared suddenly and is quite big and firm to the touch. Very painful painkillers don't help at all. I can't get a dentist appointment for a few days as they are booked up but was wondering if a doctor could deal with it as it isn't a tooth problem as such.
