My face hurts. - June 1st 2012, 10:44 AM

As the title says, my face is a bit sore. It was tender yesterday but I woke up in the middle of the night to find that I couldn't sleep on it without it hurting. It's like my whole right cheek hurts, and it is my cheek, not my gum or teeth or anything.
I've also discovered a small lump on my gum between my teeth and the side of my mouth, it doesn't hurt or anything, but it's the same colour as my gum. I've googled it and it seems common enough, everyone said it was an infection that a course of antibiotics sorted out (in most cases)
I'm just wondering what you guys think I should do about it. I am absolutely, completely terrified of the dentist and of needles. So that's a last resort. As in, my whole face is falling off and I have no other option last resort.

Are there any home remedies or anything that might do the trick? Salt water? Something I can actually do? Preferably without trying to burst whatever it is.
I'll take anything I can get, I am NOT going to the dentist.

Edit: I found some antibacterial mouthwash to try, and it must be damn good stuff because the lump's gotten smaller.
I accidentally poked it earlier and after bleeding a little it stopped hurting as much.
Nothing to worry about now, right? Please?

Have you tried Bonjela and/or Corsodyl? If you don't have either of these, try putting a bit of toothpaste over where it hurts just to keep it clean. If it's still hurting after 2 to 3 days you should get to the doctors. If it's definitely not your teeth or gums then you should be fine without going to the dentist. :]

A lump like that sounds like an abcess, which will go down but it'll get worse.
I had it and it didn't fuss me for months but then one day it grew a lot bigger.
The dentist will just take a look and give you some tablets. The dentist won't poke at it or anything.
