My gum is swollen pretty bad too.
Can I take doxycycline hyclate 100mg for an infection caused by a bad tooth?

Please someone answer asap.
My question is, why do you have doxycline? If its because you didn't take the full of course of meds for another infection I'd have to say you should have. Also, watch expiration date, because tetracyclines, which Doxy falls into, go bad and actually do harm if too old.
Yes you could, but always consult the doc/pharmacist before you take Rx meds.
Take care, best wishes!
