Unhappy How to fight a gum infection?

My wisdom teeth are coming in and a bit of my gum tore open and now I have a little white and red sore on my gums. I really don't want it to get to the point where I have to go to my dentist and get antibiotics because I get really bad side effects with them. And I am just about to go on a holiday trip... Is there any way I could fight this naturally?

I was thinking of oil pulling with coconut oil, has anyone had experience with this for fighting an infection?

Any suggestions would be helpful.

Default Gum infection

About 50+ years ago, when I was a teenager, a dentist told me to mix 1/3 hydrogen peroxide with 2/3 water to rinse my mouth twice a day. I've used it ever since for toothaches or any problems with my gums, mouth in general. It works very well. Just don't swallow it. You only need a small amount, just enough to rinse twice.

If you can find it, try powdered myrrh -
It has helped many folks with gum and tooth issues (and skin issues)
The myrrh essential oil might be useful too - but that powdered myrrh is amazing.
