See a doctor: See a doctor that specializes in head, neck and mouth pain. A lot of these symptoms can be explained by tension of the muscles in the neck, temporal area, and jaw muscles. This type a doctor can identify and treat the problem areas accordingly.

How long?: If the drug is nor working at all after a couple of days, it is time to change the antibiotic. Sometimes a culture can be taken to identify the bacteria involved. This is rarely necessary.
