  • You could be developing an abcess. Google it and see if that sounds like what you've got.

  • Have you rinsed with hydrogen peroxide or maybe salt water? It sounds like a gum problem. Just in case it is an abscess it might be a good idea to get it checked.

  • I answered your other question about this but I just had a thought if you do need to see a dentist but don't want to pay for it... IF you have a medical or dental school in the area go talk to them. Around here you can have dental work and surgeries done by students and they are free...
