Post wisdom-abcess-ouch

i have an abcess under my wisdom tooth and was told i could not have it removed until the infection cleared. i have since gone through "mono" and am in the final stages of that now(dead to the world, no energy, lots of ouch!) i am taking 3 advil every 4 hrs, but have been doing so for week and a half for other pain during "mono". (teeth had not bothered me for 2 months prior). advil does not seem to be keeping the swelling down, or the pain. any immediate suggestions until my appt. next week?

Although I can't tell you to stop taking Advil for pain, I will suggest a simple way of reducing the pain. Clove Oil has been a wonderful home remedy for toothaches for years. Just put a drop or two on the tooth and around the gum. This Oil doesn't taste very pleasent, but it works. I have recommended this to many and used it personally myself. You might find this at any health food store or local pharmacy. Best wishes!
