I have a great big gum boil thats come up next to my tooth on the side of my gum over the last week and I have noticed that over the last few days it has become even bigger and looking like its going to burst at some point.
I would like to know if you feel that I should burst the gum boil or let it burst by itself? I am worried that if I burst it I might damage my gum in some way and would like some advice as to what I should do with this problem.
Also would I need to take any antibiotics. I can see my own GP for that but I need to know what type of antibiotic will best deal with gum boils. Please advise.
