I had to ask for clove oil at the pharmacy and while I was there, I asked her about dry sockets, she suggested filling a syringe (like the ones you use for kids medicine) with warm salt water and try flushing out the socket first. I did and it stopped hurting at least until I ate again. She said food gets in the hole and irritates it, causing pain. I haven't had to use the clove oil (yet) so maybe I can return it and get my 5 bucks back!
