I have a huge bump of puss in my gums. It happens only seasonal whenever the weather changes from cold to summer. My teeth are ok. What could this be?

In brief: An Abscess

Your teeth are not necessarily ok.
If it is truly puss it is an infection. You need to see a dentist.

Pus is not normal in the mouth.
If the teeth are checked out and are okay, then have your dentist look for a periodontal abscess. Your diet may change when the weather changes and food my be trapped under the gums.
