Bleeding gums, brown sputum, nausea, pus. Can infected gums affect facial skin?

Hi doctor, I have a problem with my gums leaking blood. I wake up in the moring and there is blood tinged/ brown colored sputum along with nausea . This has been going on for a while but it now happens more frequently. I also notice that when I squeeze the gums around one of my tooth pus comes out. Also as long as I have had this problem, I ve had problems with my skin. Could an infection of the gums or teeth affect the facial skin?

hello, this is a simple case of tooth cavity leading to infection. try to do an RCT i.e. root canal treatment to save the tooth. infection of teeth or gum cant cause direct affection of facial skin. but no infection is good, na? it can pose problem to your heart also if it persists for long!
