I have a half there, half not there, canine tooth. No pain, but an abcess has grown way above it. Like into my sinus cavities almost. I occasionally taste it drain and it is God AWFUL! I spit that out. Yet it continues for a little longer. About two to three hours. I can suck on it and drain it. Wait about 30 min and repeat. I found clindamycin in my dresser. It's expired but I need to do something. My stomach can not handle the pills. Hence why I have so many leftover. But can I get same result if I place it directly on the abcess and into the cavity?
Honestly it doesn't work that cause u need the pill to go threw your blood stream cause when ur tooth gets infected the infection can go in your blood stream and that is very dangerous. My suggestion is you need to visit a dentist, your doctor, and or local hospital for some antibiotics u need to tell them that u can't take that medicine there's other antibiotics that will help.
