White thing on my gum and it hurts a lot

Patient : White thing on my gum and it hurts a lot and I tried salt water but it still didn't work
Symptoms:  Pain
Doctor :   Hello, Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com I understand your concern. You need to use listerine mouthwash 2-3 times daily and also apply Metronidazole gel 2-3 times daily and the bump will settle down. Try to avoid spicy food for the time being. Hope this was helpful, Regards
