As it's 2 a.m. and I prefer not to wake anyone up, my usual tactic of brushing and rinsing thoroughly is out of the question. However, I'm finding that taking a tea bag and just pressing it up against the abscess (which is still forming) is workingly marginally. It hurts a bit, but that's just the pressure of the tea bag against the sensitive flesh. So, I'm doing that and sitting here with a napkin wiping up drool, hoping the pain will recede enough for me to sleep until I can get up to brush without waking everyone, hopefully use pin to drain in, and I'm going to take the steps to finally going to a dentist.
