I have a dental abscess the size of a brazil nut to the side of the back tooth on my upper left jaw.
I have not been to a dentist - I have no money, only £40 left in the world. There is no way for me to get money - I am trying to sell my few remaining things.
I have lost my job and only have 6 weeks rent paid up in which to turn things around.
There are no friends or family to turn to.
The cost of just the checkup at a dentist is £18 and treatment at least £50 more (source nhs direct)
I cannot pay the fee.
Such is the size of the swelling on the upper palate, I cannot eat any solid food, barely swallow, sleep or, most of the time think - the pain is constant and agonising, even compared to other dental pain I have experienced.
I have 6 painkiller tablets left, but daren't use them.
Please advise how I can treat this myself. If I can get hold of a cheap syringe and sterilise it can I drain the pus myself?
I hope someone has an answer otherwise, well, I don't know what I will do.
Thank you for your time.
