I have an abscess underneath my nose between gum and upper lip. Lip was swollen to the point that it almost covered bottom lip. I now have an abscess that not only is underneath the nose but also goes down to the one tooth that I needed a root canal in (tooth broke). I'm taking 300 mgs of clindamycin 4 times a day and 1000 mgs of acetaminophen). I'm doing salt water rinses, mouthwash, teabags, warm compresses and I have a horrible throbbing. When will they pop and what else can I do. I just want to be able to eat normally and get a good nights sleep. I don't have dental insurance to take care of the problem.
