Welcome to JustAnswer, and thank you for putting your trust in me!Would it be possible for you to provide a photograph of the affected area? Use the "tree" icon on the text entry form toolbar to upload your graphics file. An alternative would be to upload you photo to an online photo hosting site, such as Flickr or Photobucket.This will allow me to provide a more accurate and relevant response.
The only area affected is on the left side in the photo - right side in actual - It is just as bad this morning as it was last night. My dentist can't see me until the end of Feb, so I'm trying to determine if this is more urgent and needs immediate attention.
