First put some ice on cheek/face to bring down swelling, then rinse with warm salt water several times a day. You can also use a heating pad. Also a hot tea bag put on gums/tooth should help bring out some of the infection. Try to make an appt with your dentist quickly as you need antibiotics for the pain and infection. I hope this has helped.. Good luck
Well, I don't mean to sound the way I usually sound (and criticized by most here); have you seen a Dr? I would think, before it (or if) gets any worse (after all suggestions have been tried) you may want to seek medical attention before this escalates (as many infections will). Hope this helps.
I don't want to scare you however a friend of mine assumed she had an abcess also in her tooth, and it turned out to be MRSA, it can affect any area of your body, I would run, run, run to the nearest Dentist just to be sure. MRSA can and does kill people. I've dealt with it myself so I know what I'm talking about, I also had one in my upper lip the abcess was so bad the pain was awful, and had I not gone to the Doctor I would have ended up in the hospital. I was put on Cephalaxin and an ointment called Bactrim, to rub into each nostril , and also onto the area that was full of pus, as we carry the virus via our nasal cavities, and it is very contagious. I do hope you have this checked out ASAP. God Bless, and I pray you do not have MRSA, but it is better to be safe than sorry. Good luck my friend. and God Bless You.
Call your dentist if you have one, they will call in a antibiotic and a pain reliver to the pharmacy. that is nothing mt mess with at all! i can't stress that enough! this is nothing to mess with. as midwestma said it can be much worse then you think. i have dealt with them in the past and know how painful it can be but my dentist always took me righ in even on a sunday and would relieve that poison in their and pack it with medicine and put me on antibiotics immediately. it would also feel better the minute he would release all that awful pusy infection. If you don't have a dentist to go to, go to the emergeny room until you can call a dentist they will help you.
