3 wks ago I had my tooth worked on at the dentist to relieve some preassure of tooth pain I was having. No bump or swelling at that time. I finished my amoxicillan prescribed. Three days later, I started with pain again and major swelling in cheek. I went back into dentist and they tried to drain the hard ping pong sized lump in my lower right cheek. I left feeling less pain, but more swelling and bigger lump/more hard. I started new anitbiotic Clinamycin for 3 days and began getting sore throat, swollen neck, larger lump. I went to my doctor since my dentist was on call and instructed me to. The doctor gave me a shot of rocephan and sent me to an oral surgeon the same day. They lanced the site but nothing drained. I'm in so much more pain, with a sore throat, ear and neck now...even worse than before....Any ideas?
