The mouth usually heals fast. Give it a few more days. Stop poking at it and you won't even notice when it's gone.

and what the hell is magic mouthwash?

refers to a lot of things. in the pharmacy usually its for people undergoing chemo. they have a compromised immune system and are prone to infections, including the mouth and throat. Usually its a mix of benadryl and an antibiotic. But it could be many other things.

I'm a dental student, your gum is probably just irritated, give it a few days, gingiva heals very fast. If there's still pain, then call your dentist. Also it is not a canker sore, they do not form in that area.

Careful with overbrushing. Mouth infections are very common due to the natural presence of a high number of bacteria in the mouth so you don't want to irritate the cut or open it up more. Mouthwash could also irritate the cut and burn due to the alcohol. The salt water twice a day is a good idea for preventing infection (one teaspoon mixed in a cup of warm water)- gargle and spit. If it gets to be very painful, use a numbing agent such as orajel. If the pain gets out of control even with orajel/ if the spot becomes very red and swollen go to the dentist or doctor right away for antibiotics because it's probably infected. But usually something like this clears up within a couple days. If not, again go to the dentist.
