I have a bacterial infection in my gums because of my wisdom teeth coming in. I have taken Clindamycin and Motrin but it does not work.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Gum infection can be due to a number of reasons like tooth infection or cavity, abscess, etc.
If Clindamycin is not working, I suggest taking Amoxicillin 500 mg twice daily for five days. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and start taking the medicines with their consent.
Along with this, start with some warm saline gargles at least five to six times a day for a week.
Hope this helps you.
