What may be the reason for tooth abscess which looks like open cut on gum and face swelling?
Hi there. I'm suffering with what I thought was/is a tooth abscess as I have what looks like a tiny open cut on my gum next to my molar and my face swells from time to time. Underneath and around my jaw is very painful when pressed and I've just brushed my teeth and spat out blood. I've had hot flushes all day too, any ideas as to what may this be? I'm 19 years old.
Hi, Welcome to Health care magic forum. As you describe it appears to be the wisdom tooth, means a 2nd molar tooth behind the 1st molar tooth. As the space there is little, it will tear the gums and stop for while, so cause the infection. I advise you to consult a dentist, for diagnosis and treatment. If not cured by conservatory treatment, it is to be extracted by surgery. Take more of green leafy vegetables, pulses,sprouts, and protein rich foods. Wishing for a quick and complete recovery. Thank you.
