On my lower right side of my mouth I have a red patch I would call it between my gum and my cheek ( if you ran your finger along the bottom of your gums it would be there ) . It’s only ‘painful’ when I touch it and even then it’s not pain as such kind of sensitivity. But I also have a tender lymph node too so I’m really unsure what is going on? Do dental/mouth abscesses start like this or is it a big lump with lots of pain?

An abscess is extremely painful and can present with other symptoms like fever. But i think it might be just worth getting it checked out by your GP. Rather safe than sorry.
