Gum Abscess??

Would a gum abscess cause shooting pain from gum area across cheek to eye, and down neck?  I has blood blister in affected area with draining blood and bad smell

You clearly have an infection and need urgent medical attention.

Take pain relief as directed on the packet if you require any pain relief and gargle with salty water.

See your doctor or dentist urgently.  You require a course of antibiotics.

Best wishes.
