Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I had a tooth pulled a few days back. The pain started getting bad the next day. Pain medicines are not working, running a fever and vomiting every day since.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

It can be the case of dry socket and your tooth area would be naked right now. Send a picture of the area if possible and radiograph if you have. I feel the doctor must have taken precautions as you are on contraceptives which are likely to induce it. Send your details further. I think you should do one thing. Ask the dentist if it is a case of dry socket and place ZOE pack for three days. Home remedies will not help.

People stop using mouth gargles. After reading your case history I feel your problem got created because of lack of instructions after tooth removal. It is a case of carelessness on your part as well. You need not try mouthwashes, gargles. These things dislodge your clot and moreover, you are already high-risk patient due to contraceptives.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
