My husband has had problems with a tooth for about 9 months. Just recently some pus drained from the tooth.
He has also had a low grade fever. I am wondering if a side effect from a long term abscessed tooth can be blood in his semen. A doctor put him on Amoxicillin 1500mg every 8 hours for 6 doses then 500mg every 8 hours for 14 days.
Is this proper treatment?
I'm recovering from an abscessed tooth. Mine developed 3 weeks ago and 2 days lator I had to have an Endodonist drain it on an emergency basis because the swelling was already moving up to my eye. I was told to get the tooth extracted because of my medical condition (Type 1 Diabetic). After I got it drained my dentist put me on 4,000mg of Amoxicillin a day becasue I had to get rid of the infection and the swelling had to continue to go down before he extracted the tooth. In my opinion I feel your husband is on proper treatment. However I'm uncertain about the effects of it being long term and the possibility of blood being in his semen.
I have had an absess (abscess) for 3 years now I went through all of the pain in the first year and the swelling and now I have really bad pain some times and a really bad smell all of the time also a lot of my fillings ar chipped off and falling out also I am getting a lot o new cavitys I have also lost my appitite what is going to happen if I don't fix it? And what is going on with it
