tooth/jaw pain

My husband gets bad tooth absesesses (excuse spelling) and it went away with some amoxicilin, but now he has a hard as a rock round pouch on his jaw bone and he's in a lot of pain. we dont have medical insurance and live far from the er. Maybe you can help me with what it might be? thanks.

This needs to be evaluated by a physician, no matter how long a drive to his or her office or the emergency department.

Amoxicillin will not cure an abscess, He needs to see an endodontist.
