... still use them ?? cant see a dentist yet and the infection is very painful. Help !!
CALL your dentist. They will usually call you in a prescription to help until you can be seen. If the PCN is older than a year, it is too old and may not be as effective.
Hello Patty... in the meantime, you can gargle with really warm salt water. Mix 8 oz. glass of water and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Stir well and gargle 3-4 times per day. That will help with the infection, too along with the pressure and swelling. It generally isn't a good idea to take antibiotics that old. However, when prescribed... take the medication exactly as prescribed until finished... even if feeling better. Take it all...
Sorry but a bit harsh here,i had a pain turned out to be a route canal job,so go visit your dentist explain the situation, you don't want it playing up on Christmas day,good look,and believe it or not i didn't feel a thing
