So I had a visit to the dentist last week I haven’t been for 2 years my nerves always get the better of me anyway I’ve got this gum boil above my front tooth (doesn’t hurt) but can leak a tiny amount of pus but she’s told me the tooth the boil is above isn’t infected it’s actually the tooth next to it can this be right? I always thought it was the tooth it was above I’ve to have 2 root canals and I’m absolutely terrified it will fail but the gum boil is also causing me so much anxiety worrying I’ll get sepsis 😢

Yes that can be right. You won't get sepsis.
