Hey
I assume that the cause is a tooth:confused:
If this is so, it is important to realize that antibiotics are very limited with their effect when it comes to the teeth, they can not really get to bacteria that are sitting in the tooth.
The antibiotics can help if the bacteria spread outside the tooth and also in a limited way.
The only way to get rid of bacteria that sit in a tooth tissue is with a dental treatment. If the fear from the dentist is the main reason fro avoiding the dentist, this website is a great source of information and support.

:thumbsup:
