Exclamation Sever PAIN. infected wisdom. no insurance. HELP!!

Ive been on a waiting list for n oral surgeon thru state aid for over 8 months now.. since then my bottom wisdom tooth has poked thru and i assume is 'partially impacted'- from what i've read.
its been seeping a distinct fluid which has been giving me the worst sore throat ive ever had. being had over 2 weeks now.. any suggestions on the throat?
i did go to an "ER clinic" which proscribed me amoxicillin- still have another week on it. tho once the drugs run out, hopefully the infection does too, i have no other plan or the slightest idea of where to go, what to do.. uhg.
Hopefully without sounding, over the top:
sore throat- down neck
jaw pain- which reaches from tooth to ear
inner ear pain- constant altitude changes, very achy, tend to put pressure to relieve pressure;if that makes sense
dizzy/out of it
swollen side of my face
(maybe none related)..
sciatic nerve has been a constant problem, very painful
weak, fatigue, headaches, tired
very cranky<ha

living on tips is the biggest pain when in need-- and im sure living off $16 amoxicillin will surely, eventually, turn sourly. if anyone has any suggestions or similar stories i could use really use the advice.

Also. can this infection spread thru my bloodstream??

Re: Sever PAIN. infected wisdom. no insurance. HELP!!

Usually I'd suggest you go to a dental school's low cost clinic, but the nearest ones to you are Dallas and Albuquerque. Still, that may be an option.

Infected wisdom tooth with swollen side of face is not a good situation, and yes, it is possible for the infection to spread beyond your jaw. Can you call the aid people and let them know what's going on? The amoxicillin should help, but if there's an abscess in there, pills are not going to fix it.

In the meantime, gargling with 3% hydrogen peroxide may help clean out the infection, and gargling with warm salt water may relieve your throat.
