    Help!
    I started having pretty severe pain in my gums, and kind of in my teeth too. I noticed the painful section of my gums are red. I have been using Anbesol, Advil, and CBD oil for pain, but they are starting to not help much anymore. I can't even sleep well due to this. What is this and will it go away? I would like to avoid a dentist as I do not have the money, but if it is necessary I will have to go somehow. I do often get canker sores, but I see no white spot here, so I am assuming it is something else.

    I see a faint white spot. The symptoms are consistent with canker sore. Did you traumatize the area? Are you using any new toothpaste, rinses, medications, herbal supplements, cinnamon products, etc? I'm suspecting it to be an autoimmune response.
