On medication to lower immune system, have dry mouth, inflamed tonsils., swollen gums, white and red spots on tongue. Reasons ?

I take medication to lower my immune system due possible creast syndrome or pre disposition of lupus .Four different specialist have not successfully been able to make a definite diagnosis. Consequently i have a dry mouth from all the meds i take. I woke up with my tonsils inflamed and hurting to even drink water. I saw a doctor which prescribed antibiotics for seven days. now my gum is swollen and i have a severe tooth ache which is bleeding on the gum line. I also noticed two white spots like pimples on my tongue and a few red dots on my tongue. As I looked under my tongue i noticed what appeared perhaps an abscess or deformity adjacent to the tooth which is hurting and bleeding. Also my face looks red and feels hot. what measures can I take meanwhile i return to my home town and see my doctor?

Thanks for posting your query.
Dry mouth can lead into high incidence of dental caries which can lead into abscess under the gums resulting in swollen gums.
White and red spot like lesion on gums may be due to-aphthous ulcers.
I would advice you to get a thorough clinical as well as radiological examination of the inflamed area done.
If required -root canal treatment ,drainage and curettage of abscess has to be done.
Get your teeth cleaned.
Use chlorhexidine mouthrinse to gargle.
Vitamin becosules,iron and folic acid supplements has to be administered.
Take fluids and nutritional rich diet.
Avoid anxiety and stressful jobs.
Take care.
