I have my gums, both upper and lower of the left side,that are itching and aching at the same time. It’s been almost a week now since they started itching and i mouth washed my mouth with Oraldene. But yesterday things got worse . When i wash my teeth or drink something the pain becomes unbearable . I went to my dentist and he told me that it has to heal itself and gave me Curasept mouthwash and admuc ointment. He also told me that my gums are red but there is no wound or something like that . But i can’t take the pain anymore. Can anyone help me please ? Thanks in advance.
