Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for consulting Healthcaremagic .
This is Dr. Priyanka tiwari answering your query .

I have gone through your query and images you have attached . As far as I have noticed it is Periodontal Abscess due to Periodontal infection (gum infection) . Dont be worried so much . I will suggest you to consult oral surgeon for clinical examination and intra oral periapical x-ray to rule out the exact condition of tooth and gum. If radiograph reveals Periodontal infection, then treatment done is scaling and curretage .

In meantime I will suggest you to do some remedies -

-Brush your teeth twice daily using soft bristle toothbrush .
-Do warm saline rinses 2 to 3 times a day .
-Use chlorhhexidine containing mouthwash .
-You can take medicine like Amoxicillin CV by consulting with local doctor .

Hope I have answered your query .
If you have further query I will be happy to help.
