Doxycycline for abcessed tooth

Common Questions and Answers about Doxycycline for abcessed tooth


Hi all, I hope someone can offer some advice. About 6 months ago, I had tooth #3 (upper right molar second from back) extracted because it had caused me problems with various infections for over 5 years - I'd had root canal, apecioectomy, etc on it and nothing helped. It was severely abcessed beforehand. But the infection seemed to settle down after the extraction, although it never seemed to go completely away - it was still sore and the gums just felt infected still. But no abcess, so ...
The doctor looked at scalp and said it looked very red and irritated and appeared like it was a scalp infection (dermatologist never even looked - she was USELESS). She prescribed doxycycline (antib) for the scalp, gave me a steroid creme for the arm rash, and said to take probiotics for a week or two to see if that helps the diarreah. She also did take a slew of blood tests. All came back normal except elevated calcium of 10.5.
That has happened to me once like 2 weeks ago!! I had no idea what it is either but i was alittle embrassed to ask.....if someone knows please help.... did they ever pop and pus come out?? they hurt badly i know!! I had one near my pubic hair line, i thought they might have been ingrown hair but i have never had one like that either!
