Your brother needs to see a dentist to see what is causing the redness and painful areas, sometimes antibiotics cause the normal bacteria of the mouth to die and allows fungal infections to develop, he may need a antifungal to help with the sores and the numbing meds like Oragel can increase the soreness and sore spots

Antibiotics only calm the infection down. The source of the infection needs to be treated, and that can mean a filling, root canal or extraction.

some antibiotics can interfere with the hormones in the birth control pills, you need to contact your ob-gyn to see if the issue is related. Alternate birth control is recommended when on some antibiotics.

Act now


ANY time there is swelling that accompanies a known infection source there is a risk that your body's immune defenses are reaching a limit. Wisdom tooth swelling/infection can be dangerous. Call for an appt to be examined ASAP. Make sure you explain "swelling present" and get started on treatment--either surgical or pharmaceutical. Good luck.

Antibiotics will not cure a tooth abscess. The best you can hope for is some temporary relief. Get to a dentist for a cure

See dentist. If pain meds don't work you will likely need some dental intervention.

Solve the problem!


If you recently had dental work, call your dentist. If you didn't, call your dentist. Like a splinter in your finger, dental pain exists because there is a problem. Would you take pain medication and antibiotics to manage the splinter? Not likely: you would take it out! Don't just medicate, solve the problem & be well :-)

See your dentist. Dental pain can be intense. If there is inflammation in your jaw muscles, this can radiate to the back of the neck and possibly the arm on the affected side. See your doctor and get your electrolytes checked.
