Hi there. Thank you for taking my query. I have a sore pimple present between the bottom front teeth and lower lip. The gums under the teeth base of six teeth look sunken and red. It seems to spread along the gums. I have the issue for two days and have a dental hygiene appointment in the next three days.
The pimple may be an emerging oral ulcer that should go away in a week or two. Apply an oral antibiotic gel two or three times a day. Use a warm saltwater gargle or a mouthwash too. If multiple ulcers emerge, then take vitamin B complex capsules once a day for 15 days. The gums are slightly red around such emerging ulcers, and they will go away in time. There may be some bone loss due to varied reasons, and age is the one main reason. Are you taking any medicines? Thank you.
Thank you doctor,
Thank you. I am not taking any medicines. At present, I am taking iron and B12 supplements as they are low. Yes, as I am being 65 years old, I may also have some bone loss. Is this ulcer occur due to infection? Thank you.
Pimples which form ulcer inside the mouth is not due to infection, but ulcers can get infected due to food intake. It may cause pain for three or four days, but it will go away. So do not be worried. Thank you.
