Q.

Abcess

Hi

I had a abcess and started with flagyl and moxypen after the first dose it did not clear up so they gave me a penicillin injection and upped the dose of flagyl and moxypen. About a week later i found out i was pregnant and advised to stop the flagyl and cut the dose of antibiotics. So the abcess didn' t clear up. Now the pain is terrible but they wont pull it untill i am past the 4th months. Is there anything i can take over the counter that will take the swelling down and ease the pain.

Thanks
Anon

No, but see a maxillofacial specialist -he will be able to treat you for drainage of the abscess- have him call your gynae and liase first
