  • gargle/rinse with hydrogen peroxide or salt water...it will kill anything in case it is abscessed

  • Orajel Jr. I and my DH found it works better (and tastes better) than orajel for adults. Good luck, I'm sorry you are in so much pain. Been there and it SUCKS.

  • i know your pain. =(

    i took some tylenol or motrin & used anbesol/orajel. i even used my baby's teething gel a few times when i couldn't get to the store in time. & lots of naps so i wouldn't be awake for the pain.

  • Right now its just a mild annoyance. A 3 on the pain scale.
