In brief: You really can't
If your tooth is infected i would see a dentist right away.
Antibiotics may make it feel better temporarily, but it will come back, and having an infection anywhere, especially in your head.

In brief: Get a string
Just kidding. You do not want to treat this yourself or pull the tooth out.
Go see a dentist.

In brief: Too little too late
You likely need antibiotics if you have a tooth infection.
You need to see a dentist. Good dental hygiene can help keep this from happening in the future. If you wait, this could become a much larger issue requiring more extensive dental work which could end up being more painful and more costly financially so go get it taken care of now.
