For the past two days now the back of my gums on the left side have been hurting.. I have my wisdom teeth in and maybe they are still coming in?? I don't really know. But also on the side of my gums by the very back tooth is a lil white bumb that hurts when you touch it.. and the very back of the tooth looks like blood lining it.. It's starting to hurt bad and I don't know what it could be?

Dear kdjandcab ,

In the total absence of diagnostic data, I don't know what it is, either. If you would like a guess, I'd say that you are probably on the mark with your speculative wisdom tooth suspicion, but that's only a guess.

If you want to know what it is, or what its health significance is, or what remedial action is appropriate, you will need to visit your dentist.

Good luck!

Dear kdjancab:
Dr. Mark is totally right! Please go see your dentist and have a correct diagnosis. Things in dentistry tend only to get worse. A dentist will be able to tell you if your problems are strictly related to hygiene or to a much more complex situation.
Best of luck,
Dr. Zev Kaufman
