Toothache. Dentist put something on the gum. Having long white welt on gum causing pain, burning. Reason?

I went to the dentist for a toothache and thought it might be a problem with my gums right near the tooth, so my dentist said it might be the root surface so he put something on my tooth and gum, and it was not the problem. Once I left the dentist office my mouth hurt 10 times worse and noticed a long white welt on my gum like inside my cheek but towards the bottom of the tooh. It is so painful I can t eat or even talk right. My cheek and where the welt is is so swollen. What can I do for this for the pain to go away and the welt to go away? And what did the dentist put on my gums to make this happen? It feels like a burn of some sort.. Think that s the only way you can get a welt.

hello and welcome to HCM forum,
i would like to inform you that the white patch which has developed on the cheek and the gum is most probably from the medicine applied on your tooth, i cannot assure if its a burn until checked clinically.
i do not know the reason behind the pain in your tooth, is it caries(decay) or due to infection in the gums.
i recommend you to use an antibacterial mouth rinse(twice/day) for 5 days,
also, you can apply Dologel-CT over the soft tissue which is sore(apply with finger, massage it for 1 minute and leave it for half an hour).
For the tooth ache you will have to see your dentist as he/she might prescribe antibiotics and painkillers.
i hope i answered your query,
i wish you good health.
