Likely infection: The topical pain killers in dry socket dressings are designed to provide quick acting and sometimes short term relief while the underlying infection starts to resolve. Since that infection can take up to a week to resolve, it is common for pain to recur and require replacement of the dry socket dressing a few times while managing the condition. Systemic painkillers like Ibuprofen are very helpful. ...Read more
