I have a fairly bad infection in my upper left gum line, what would be the best over the counter treatment I could get? I don't have insurance...

In brief: There aren't any

Gum infections can't be cured with pills, ointments, snake oil, emollients, or salves.
Gum infections are very serious, destroying gum tissue and the underlying bone that supports the teeth. Contact a gum specialist, a Periodontist, and ask about payment options. Contact Social Services for locations of dental clinics. Seek treatment at a Dental School.
