Had dental abcess, tooth extracted 1 week pen vk. Had blood test done low k. Can this mean infection is still there. No fever, and tingly hb.?
Not related. Pen vk is a potassium salt version of penicillin that is formulated to provide acid stability (in your stomach) , solubility, and rapid absorption. There is not enough potassium (k) in it to affect your observation of low potassium or hypokalemia. The most common cause of low potassium is excessive potassium loss in urine or from the digestive tract, often a side effect of prescription diuretics.
Low K not infection. The low vit.K does not have to do with the dental abscess or increase the risk of infection, the only caution to take is unexpected bleeding. If one week after the extraction you still have the abscess you should go to see your dentist. If there is not systematic sintomatology like fever, it is good sign of no infection.
No. If tissues are healing and no pain/fever (confirm with your dentist) infection should be gone.
Had dental abcess. Tooth extracted. During work out felt very weak and got echo in the ear. Did blood work ekg, and xray, good. Ended pen vk yesterday?
All will be OK. How long ago was extraction? If within 2 days, taking it easy with workout would be reasonable. The clot formed is not fully "set" and raising heartrate/bp could cause dislodging it. This would cause a "dry socket", an uncomfortable situation. Penicillin is being used to kill the bacteria from the abscess. It will take a few days to resolve. Follow oral surgeons advice, and all should be fine. Read more...
