Tooth abscess

I've been having excruciating pain in my right jaw, teeth and gums that radiates to the middle of my chin. I started taking CIPRO because thats all I have on hand. I tried rinsing with warm salt water but the pain became more severe on contact. Can applying a heating pad to my cheek cause more damage? I've heard controversy about the type of treatment.
