yes I'm a homeopath and if you can get homeopathic remedies there you need Hepar Sulph and you need to take it 4 times a day. No side effects...but good luck anyway. JGYG x

How about a very large mango martini?

use moist heat - a damp cloth with heating pad - it may help

I get these often...when food finds a stuck place in a pocket of my gum.
I clean well with floss and my trusty WaterPik that flushes out the "dirt".
Then I use warm salt water gargle, and mouth wash (separately) regularly.
IPB for the pain.
If all else fails I call the dentist.
I got up early to do just that this morning, as I have been nursing a tooth ache for three days now. Only to find out that they closed the office today for some reason!
OYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!

May you heal quickly.

Ouch. That can hurt. I know that cloves can help soothe toothache, so maybe lightly chewing on one to release the essence, and keeping it in your mouth next to the painful spot will help ... until you see an expert. Hope you feel better soon.

Just to remind you, you CAN NOT have 'IPB'.
Get yourself to a dentist! x

Jude - hope you are feeling better. If you feel like playing, you've been tagged - check out my blog. Maybe this will distract you a bit from the pain!

Lynn said...

I hope you are out of pain by now.
My toothache went away after about four days...I used IBP for it. Then it just went back to normal so never did make it into the dentist. I will tell him however as I do have a cleaning appt. soon.
