Gums-tooth abscess: This infection will not resolve on its own with home care. The most common type of dental abscess is a tooth, and the second most common is a gum or combination of both tooth-gum abscess. In order to get appropriate treatment it is important to know the underlying cause for this infection. Rec.: see your dentist for evaluation, x-rays and treatment.

Spotted bump: May be infection, as in a draining abscessed tooth. May be a canker sore. May be so many other things. Will have to be examined to be diagnosed. Please see your Dentist.

Give it time: Most likely will resolve on its own. Sounds like it was caused by physical factors, such as friction. Give it time.
