I have an abscess for the past 8 days from furthest back molar. I was diagnosed with this 7 days ago to which I was prescribed amoxicillin 500mg. Once started my antibiotics my face begun to swell along bottom of right jaw line which started to spread down my neck. I have been unable to open my mouth anymore than 1 cm. This is not a pain restricting. Me from opening my mouth but some form of mechanical stoppage. I went through out of hours service which I was prescribed co-amoxiclav and co-codomal . I hit the 48 hour mark tomorrow morning to which out of hours doc said the swelling will have been gone. The swelling has slightly decreased from my gland and jaw line but has started to spread up my cheek. I have all typical pain related to an abscess like ear ache and head ache. I found I hard to swallow but is easier now after starting the co-amoxiclav. If the swelling has not started to decrease after 48 hours I'm not sure what i could do ?
Thank you for your time and any response 😁
