I am uninsured and on a limited income. I have been using a new product called Eucuryl to remove stains from my teeth. This is the only change in my routine which is why I mention it. I developed a very swollen gum in front of my lower canine. My glands are not swollen but tender, down into my chin feels bruised. My tooth or teeth feel no sensitivity at all and show no sign of decay. Is this an abcess, an allergy to the new product or is it a sign of maybe a sinus infection? I feel like I want to seek attention for this because it has gone on for about 2 weeks now. When the gum was swollen I did run some fever and did not feel well. I have been washing my mouth with a homemade mouth wash of clove,tumeric, and cinnamon. This has relieved the swelling and pain in the gum somewhat though my glands are still tender. Any advise would be appreciated.View Thread
