how long does it take for the antibiotics to start working
i noticed myself getting an abscess a couple days ago. well i waited a day then went to the hospital. got my prescription for amoxicillin, which i started taking this morning. about how long till the swelling subsides? and is there any easy way o at least numb the pain so i can get some rest?

whenever you want to treat an abscess... the abscess must be drained plus the use of antibiotics...
antibiotics alone may make the abscess to subside but recurrence rate is high. (acute episodes)...
when the condition is rendered chronic, antibiotics may be enough depending on the case (whether there is a fistula or not)
