How can I get relief from the sore spot - a small crater like hole above the teeth gum ?

I have a sore spot in my far upper right gum (above the teeth gum.) I just discovered that its actually a small crater like hole. about the size of pen point. I ve had a sore thoat for the last few days and that spot has been very sore for about 5 days. It is not a canker sore as I get those all the time and this one goes in not out.

Hi, there is no relation between sore throat and spot on gum,that spot may be some ulcer or sinus opening caused due to development of any peri apical pathology in relation to that tooth in this case you should go immedieatly tp your dentist for root canal treatment of that tooth,in case of ulcer u can apply mucopain and hexigel ointment 3-4 times a day avoid gargling for half an hour after application of that ointment.take care
