Gum boil? - October 26th 2012, 01:13 PM

Omg, I'm in so much pain >____< I have a weird lump behind my back tooth. It's near my gum and cheek. It really, really hurts I can barely talk or eat because of it. Should I see the doctor or dentist if it doesn't go by Monday?

Hey Ceilidh

I had something similar to this a while back, except it was at the side of my mouth beside my cheek instead of the back. I freaked out because I googled it and saw a lot of scary words (I am so scared of the dentist) but it went away easily. I poked it with a flossing stick. I know, not really advisable, it was an accident. But it bled a little and went down really fast after that.
If it doesn't go away, you're probably right that the dentist might be the best option.

Thanks It feels better now because I took strong pain killers

I've been putting salt on it too. I'll see the doctor on Monday if it's still like this. I've barely ate.

Seeing a doctor or dentist is a good idea. You could have a really bad ulcer, or an abcess. Doctors can treat either of those quite easily, I think dentists too. In the meantime, painkillers are a good idea, and when I used to get ulcers I found rinsing with a strong mouthwash would numb the area for a couple of hours.

It has stopped hurting as much. I can actually talk now It just hurts when I eat. I've barely ate for three days >.>
