    Developed a little abscess like lump on my gum, filled with a little pus and a tiny bit of blood, I’ve squeezed it out and it seems to go away like reduce in size, then overnight it’ll seem Inflamed again, currently have a fever/virus so my throats sore and have a cold and bad cough etc, whether this has a part I don’t know, could it be a canker sore???

    Please provide x-ray to rule out abscessed teeth. The lesion is not a canker sore (apthous ulceration) but more like a draining fistula.

    Looks like a draining fistula to me too, probably from a dead 1st molar. Go to a dentist. You can't cure this with antibiotics either. It'll most likely be an extraction or a root canal therapy.
