Here's some things to think about tho. Why do you have clindamycin? Was it prescribed for you and you didn't take it all at some earlier time or was it prescribed for someone else? Does the abscess have to be drained before an antibiotic will work? Should you see a dentist and have the reason it abscessed fixed?
