Will the pain and pimples in my gums affect the fetus?

I am 20 weeks pregnant and have had a lot of bleeding from my gums, I was trying to ignore it cause I was told it was normal but Ive had a pain in the back of my mouth for two days and finally looked around and saw what looked like a pimple where my wisdom teeth used to be. Can this effect my baby?

Thanks for your query, I have gone through your query.
The pain and pimple in your gums could be because of the pericoronal flap infection of the gums around the wisdom tooth. Consult a oral physician and get it ruled out. This will affect your fetus. Do not take any medication with out prescription, do not get exposed to radiations.
If i am your treating doctor, i would have prescribed amoxicillin 5oomg tid for 3 days and paracetamol 500mg. do saline gargling. After you deliver your baby, you can get a radiograph to decide whether tooth can be saved or removed.
