I have had several of those this answer is going 2 freak u out but it's the best thing 4 u... have someone poke it with a needle or something (make sure it's sterile) if it's on the surface & let it drain spit out whatever comes out, the most Dr.'s @ emergencie room take a tougne depressor & splinter it & poke the abscess without u even knowing within a half hour it will drain. I had ended up with blood poisoning from one I was very close 2 dying it can get into the bone & bloodstream.. DONOT put the drops on it..they perscrib cleocin HCI, E-mycin, flagyl if this is a problem u have had many times they will take the tooth out sometimes it means the tooth is dead or dying
