Question Asked:

"Good morning, please Doc, I experienced immense pain in my tooth on Thursday, it was so bad that all u could do was cry, I thought I was going to lose it; later took MIXANAL and the pain subsided, not without leaving me with a swollen gum and those seedlike stuffs that surface when severe pain is felt... I knw I ll have to extract a tooth or 2 but pending that time I will appreciate if I could get a solution to the swollen gum and seeds (I don't knw the medical term).. Already used the warm water and salt therapy but it doesn't seem to be working. . I feel so uncomfortable, and different, I can neither open nor close my mouth..its frustrating. .. I await your response faithfully "
