Ok... After spending literally 48 hours with no sleep, searching forums for home remedies to help with the excruciating pain I was feeling due to my Abscess Tooth, I have decided to share with you a few of the remedies that I found that worked for me... Although, none of them completely alleviated the pain, quite a few did help somewhat until the pain subsided...

First and Foremost!!! - Amoxicillan!!!
Start taking it immediately. This is an anti-biotic which starts to kill the bacteria that is building up in your mouth!!! I started taking 2 250mg Tablets every 2 hours. While this is extreme, I simply could not handle the pain. Make certain you are not allergic! My mother is a nurse at a local correctional institution and has them readily available anytime I need them!
Amoxicillan is the only drug for me, that completely alleviates the infection and alleviates the pain %100. However, this is not a pain killer, so it will take between 24-48 Hours to start working. This is the worst time-frame imaginable. The waiting was the worst part for me, which is why I started searching and decided to share my experiences with the 'Home Remedies' that I used...

1)Naproxen!!! - 2 250mg Tablets every 2 Hours!!! This is your pain killer - anti-inflammatory and it WILL help deal with the pain... Although it will not kill it completely, it does make it a little better. I was able to get about 1 hour of sleep in 48 hours because of it!

2) Water!!! H20!!! Drink a ton of water! Immediately! Every time the throbbing pain starts getting too much to handle drink 2 FULL 8oz Glasses of Water! I didn't think this would work, but OMG this was the best! It made the pain dull almost immediately! It was my true savior!

3) Listerine Cool Mint Anti-Septic!!! One Cap Full Diluted w/ 1 8oz Cup of Water. Gargle and Spit it out! I did this constantly! This is a pain in the butt because of the repetition, but if you are anything like me... The thirty seconds of no pain was worth it!

4) Brush / Mouthwash!!! This should go without saying, but make certain you are Brushing and using Mouthwash as much as possible... The cleaner your mouth is, the less bacteria is building up on an already horrible existing condition.

5) Hot Shower!!! Sit down in your shower and let the water hit the back of your neck! Just relax, take deep breathes and focus on how wonderful the rest of your body feels! The reason pain in your head is so horrible is because all of the nerves are located so close to your brain, which is why several people develop headaches, earaches, sinus issues and throat problems when an issue arises in your head they are connected and usually affect one another when something is wrong... So Get Naked, Sit Down, Enjoy The Water and have your significant other wait on you hand and foot and try to relax and think about how wonderful you are, and how tough you!!! knowing that in a few hours you are going to feel better!!!

6) Reading Remedies!!! Believe it or not, spending my time reading the many different home remedy forums that are available online, took my mind off the pain I was feeling and made me feel really bad for others, who had conditions much worst than mine and mine was terrible! Occupy your time, and just keep in mind that the pain is only temporary! You will get through it! It is terrible and no-one knows what you are going through until they themselves have to deal with it!

Good Luck! Feel Better!
