Thanks to everyone for your advice. I went and bought the first aid Eugenol your spoke of. I had preventative dental work done with a filling on my back molar. I was having no pain at the time. A few days later I developed an abcess. I had the tooth pulled on Monday and now I guess I have dry socket. The dentist keeps telling me it is just an abcess and to keep taking the antibiotics. I went for a second opinion at my doctor and switched to a much stronger antibiotic. The pain is excruciating, feels like I was hit in the face with a baseball bat. The narcotics only take the edge off of the pain. I don't sleep much because I cannot get the pressure and pain to ease at all. I just read your blog on home remedies and went to the drug store. I really just wanted to lay down in bed, but I figured I would try it. This is the first relief I have felt in days. Orajel only works for a few minutes. I believe this remedy will get me through until the socket heals and the antibiotic does its job. Thank you so much!! I think I would have ended up at the ER tonight if this did not work.
