Red cross tooth ache kit is the BOMB! Took my pain from a 10 to 1 instantly!!!! Burns if u touch other tissue, but pain alleviation worth it!!
Thanks everyone for your recomendations on this board. I read this at almost 1am cause I was in so much pain and couldn't sleep. Right away I looked up the nearest cvs 24 hour pharmacy to me. I went right away and found the Red Cross Toothache kit. Just got home and used it. Wow, instant releif. Thanks so much. This is day 9 after my tooth was pulled. I've endured the pain for about 6 days now. Yea, I must have been crazy, but so glad I finally started looking into why this gum hole was so painful. Thanks.
The Red Cross Toothache kit works!!! Just came back from Walgreens after suffering with a terrible dry socket. The tooth was removed 3 days ago and i've been in agony for the last 8 hours. After reviewing all the comments i jumped in the car. I feel better already. Thank God for this website!
My dentist crushed a baby aspirin up and made a paste with it and the clove oil and put it up in my socket. Worked great.

I just wanted to thank everybody for his or her advice and comments. My husband bought the Red Cross Toothache kit for me today. I followed the directions and immediately received relief from this horrible pain. On a scale of one to ten I was a nine and now I am a zero. As others have commented do your best to touch the extraction place only. I accidentally touched the corner of my lip and it burned like crazy; though it lasted only a short while. I am thanking the heavens above for finding this web site. My extraction was 3 days ago and by last night I was ready to take a long walk off a short bridge, the pain was unbearable. I 100% percent recommend Red Cross Toothache product. The taste is gross but well worth the results. Who knew that so many people could fall in love with cloves!
I had a tooth extracted and two days later found out I have a dry socket, even though I did aftercare by the book. My dentist packed the socket with wood shaving soaked in oil of clove. It felt better for a few hours then the pain started again. Once I washed out the shavings, it felt a little better. The hydrocodone has done nothing but make my stomach upset. I live in a small town and oil of clove is not available (believe it, I have tried Walgreens, Walmart, you name it!) So I rinsed with salt water, used a syringe with warm salt water to clean out the socket, then rinsed with salt water again. Last, I rinsed with Peroxyl mouthwash for two minutes. So far, this is working and my pain is managed with over-the-counter ibuprofin and tylenol alternated every few hours. Good luck..this is a miserable condition and I hope you will have pain-free days soon!
I just had to comment and say that all the suggestions to get the Red Cross kit was a lifesaver! My poor mom just had 2 teeth pulled on friday, after one of her molar roots cracked and absessed. a bridge with two teeth was connected to that molar, and another tooth was affected. So, she had 2 pulled, 4 gone all together. Plus, they put more bone in to build it up for when they put in the dental implants down the road. She's only been taking advil, and has been very sore, but today she was in excruciating pain.... She mentioned that she thought she might have a dry socket, I googled 'dry socket pain relief' and came across this page. I immediately ran out and bought her the kit.
She is so thankful to all who suggested it here... within a moment after applying the oil she felt relief, she said it's a whole world of difference and highly recommends this to anyone suffering with a dry socket! She also said that she remembers that clove oil is what was always used to treat dry sockets when she worked in an oral surgery office.
I got my teeth pulled 4 days ago and on the third day i started feel ALOT of pain so since you can google pretty much anything i looked up how to remedy dry socket pain and came across this site. All the answers said either clove oil or red cross toothache. Ive used red cross before and it works great for tooth pains of all type. I used clove oil for this dry socket pains and it was the only thing that worked! either one of those is highly recommended by me. thank you all for the suggestions.
After exactly one week of severe discomfort, I looked up this information on the this web-site. The Red-Cross Toothache, found at CVS Stores, is a lifesaver. Caution, though; I tried the cotten pallets in the packet and it burned like a m'fer. I would advise using a q-tip and a little olive oil, with great caution. I went from severe pain to zero pain in about 1 minute after application. Excellent home remedy for dry sockets.
