I placed a warm tea bag on my abscess. My Dad told me the tea's tannic acid helps reduce the swelling and is an antibotic. It worked as the abscess' swelling reduced, I was able to 'suck' blood from the affected area, and the pain subsided. I also took ibupropen for the pain, chased it with a shot of teqila and went to bed with the tea bag tucked around the abscessed tooth. The next morning the area where the abscess was, there was a 'hollow' feeling where the abcess was. Thanks Dad! This works for styes too!
