I have a dental abscess. Will Flucloxacillin help?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Firstly, I would like to know if you are sure it is a dental abscess or could it be another tooth infection. I do not know if you have visited a dentist for this problem. Also, if available, forward me your X-ray or any other investigation reports.
Coming to your question, Flucloxacillin does help in case of a dental abscess, but it is always advisable to visit your dentist for a thorough check up and get treated accordingly. Flucloxacillin 500 mg twice daily for at least three days should help.
Lastly, have you been allergic to any medicines in the past?
