Rinse with hydrogen peroxide and keep the area as clean as possible.  The gum boil will eventually go away.  I don't know if I would lance it, though.

Is it a boil or abscess? I had an abscess and just got antibiotics. I called into my dentist and he prescribed them and my appointment was a week later..you might could get your family Dr to peek at it and get antibiotics if needed. I did rinse with salt water a few times a day and my dentist had mentioned tea bags.. lol I never did it Bec my spot was healing pretty well. He thought my abscess was coming and going with the bad tooth I had. It was a root canal tooth that needed to be pulled. So unfortunately, if you don't get your tooth fixed, this could happen off and on until then. Hugs. I know it's jarring to feel and see that on your gums, you will be fine. And if you don't have a dentist call one and see what they can do for you over the phone until you can get in.. hugs. I absolutely hate dentist problems lol. I hope yours gets eased fast.

I wonder if it's just a canker sore.  Canker sores are a bit painful, but they go away.

They are so sore! I had one a few months ago and it stayed for a week. Looked awful and I had a hard time eating and drinking stuff. Mouth stuff isn't fun lol. Ugh. 🤭🦷

Any kind of pain in the mouth is a mess.  I would bit the insides of my mouth due to bruxism (teeth clenching).  Even my tongue would bleed!  Then there are the broken teeth that can happen!
