... to help i have to get the infection out first and swishing perioxde what else can i do in a lot of pain
Unfortunately you are going to have to give the antibiotic time to work, like 3 or 4 days. You can also use salt water if you don't like the peroxide. There are over the counter medicines like Anbesol or Oragel for tooth pain. It is a local anesthetic in gel form that can be put in the mouth.
Hope your feeling better soon,
So sorry you are in such pain. Call your dentist's office and let them know how much pain you are in, vicodin may help and they might call that into your pharmacy for you. Although, Ibuprofen works very well on dental pain, just make sure you take it with food in your tummy!
Chewing on fresh garlic not only relieves pain within a few minutes but chewing it daily prolongs the effect even without antibiotics. The longer you can tolerate it in your mouth the better. I've been trying to save up to go to the dentist for months and the only reason I can tolerate the tooth infection is garlic cloves. Also oragel does more harm than good because of the high amount of sugar in it. For me what works best is an ice pack while the garlic does its job.
