Over the counter gum infection treatment

Common Questions and Answers about Over the counter gum infection treatment


Avatar_f_tn Take a proton pump inhibitor such as omeprazole, lansoprazole or pantoprazole empty stomach in the morning. Along with it you can try over the counter antacids. However I would recommend you see a doctor and take medication under a doctor’s supervision. Avoid heavy meals and eat frequent small meals. Avoid too much of caffeine, tea, smoking, fried food and drinks both alcoholic and non alcoholic fuzzy ones. Avoid heavy exercises within 4 hours of a heavy meal.
Avatar_n_tn I started taking over-the-counter pain reliever and using numbing gel, and this helps, but the pain persisted. I finally called my dentist to ask what he thought, and he said it sounded like a piece of food was stuck under the gum where my wisdom teeth are coming through, and was causing discomfort. He recommended using the gel to numb the area, then cleaning under the gum with peroxyl spot gel. He said that after I did that, the pain should go away quickly.
Avatar_n_tn If the broken piece is very small you may need a temporary over-the-counter filling material or dental cement. The gum tissue may become infected, inflamed or swollen. Do not pop it. The spread of infection depends on many factors like virulence of the bacteria, size of swelling etc.See a dentist. Keep us updated. Best of luck and regards!
748543_tn?1443740527 TMJ' as it is wrongly called by many) is easy to treat and self-manage or that it may all be in the patient's mind. The sources in the article stated that, "TMJ problems were originally thought to be caused by dental Malocclusion but that this was an infrequent cause of the problem". The American Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), an organization of some 40,000 of the nation's leading dentist, recognizes the relationship between maloclussion and headaches.
Avatar_n_tn next day came down with the worst cold virus / sinus infection for over a decade. ... OK so I put this down to bad luck / timing. anyway hung out with the same group of friends again on Sunday and just had a small line. Guess what ... I have a really bad sinus infection / cold again ...left side of my nose is tweaked ... swollen and running clear mucus from my left nostril. this is the side I snorted in. I FEEL AWFUL ! Like I have another terrible cold virus ... what the heck is going on ?
Avatar_m_tn Once TX is over either the HCV is gone (cured) or it's not, is that not correct? If any of the virus is left hidden to cause a relapse is there any evidence of alcohol being the cause of the relapse or just cause it faster? Thanks in advance.
Avatar_m_tn A day later I found myself reaching for over the counter pain killers. By the 4th day I was popping every few hours. 6th day I was back at the dentist with swollen face and horrific pain in sinus cavity. Said I had sinus infection to see my PCP. That afternoon my PCP put me on Amoxicillian 3 xs a day. That night was the worse night of my life. I felt like I had a tumor in my face and behind my eye. The infection reached my lymph nodes and ear canal to my forehead along with fever.
Avatar_n_tn Later that evening when we went to be we had regular intercourse. The next day I started getting a yeast infection. I've used the one day treatment, it didn't work. Now I'm using the 7 day. Someone, please tell me I'm crazy.
Avatar_n_tn ) What happens is, in sensitive people, when they get a (usually) cold virus, it inflames the nerve temporarily (meaning anywhere from a day to 3 weeks) and causes the dizziness. Treatment is aimed at symptoms, usually w/ meclizine, which can be purchased over the counter or by prescription. Also, I've had 2 brain scans (MRI's w/ contrast) and they've both been negative. Think you have to get the scans WHILE the dizziness is going on, if ya wait to long the inflammation goes down.
Avatar_f_tn I did not have any symptoms prior to the treatment that I know of. My viral load was over a million. No damage of liver and enzyms normal. I have had it for over 20 years. They say that about 20 years you will start having problems that would lead to a liver transplant. With my leukemia I was hospitalized for 3 months straight never left. Then consolidated chemo for 4 months. I missed my junior year. I relapsed senior year and had to have a bone marrow the summer before college..
Avatar_n_tn i dont suggest getting an over the counter mouthpiece for grinding . they dont fit properly and can cause more problems. i could give you more ideas as to your problem but without your dr its just information you cant use!
Avatar_m_tn All different specialists seem to have a different prognosis and the recommended pills over the years have not really done any good. None of them seem to relate to the closure of the windpipe and cant give me a straight answer when I ask them. Has anyone an answer or better still has anyone else had this problem.
Avatar_m_tn At any rate, this can be said for taking antibiotics, or any other treatment that people use for a cold or acute sinusitis—many times the body fights off the infection anyway, and whatever medicine or treatment that people are taking or doing when the infection clears up is going to get the credit. Your doctor may prescribe a corticosteroid nasal spray to help reduce your sinus congestion and the swelling and inflammation in your mucus membranes. 11.
Avatar_n_tn My dentist is wondering two things about it. One is the possibility that I may have a sinus infection in the mastoid sinus behind the ear and the other is that because of prior problems with my neck my pain may be related to nerve damage. I don't know but I can relate to the worry and the frustration. I hope that you find a solution too.
Avatar_n_tn The ulcer I have is indeed between the cheek and gum, right in that meeting point at the very top at the back of the mouth, above the back teeth and its a b***h. Had it about a week now but it started as a red sore patch or area on the gum...odd. Seems to feel like its getting better then it seems to come back abit....damn it!!! Anyone know of these garlic tabs??
Avatar_n_tn We decided on the V-beam sometime this winter. I asked for an antibiotic cream, because the over the counter triple antibiotic ointment is too greasy...but I use it only when true pus pimples show up, which is less and less. Unlike your schmucky docs, big shot very much believes that all my skin ailments are caused by Interferon. He knows me for 8 years, and saw what happend during tx, and afterwards....but as you know, he is still a schmuck in his own right.
Avatar_n_tn Me being impatient decided to go to the drug store the next day and get an over the counter yeast product as well [1st time using]. I bought the Monistat 1 ovule. The next morning I was extremely red and raw looking, swollen and miserable. The stuff looked like glue up there. It stayed extremely red and swollen for a good two days. By day 3 is seemed slightly better, but I still feel so irritated down there. There looks like a white film on the inside of my labia.
Avatar_n_tn I have pernicious anemia. The itching would almost drive me crazy. PN is dangerous if left undiagnosed. You need a more intensive blood test than just the usual cbc. If you have it, you just need b-12 injections. No amount of pills will help. Just get this checked, as it will ultimately become deadly.
Avatar_f_tn Very timely. This has been going on for over a week now. I've been looking all over the net for some relief, anything.... I did find one reference to nerve pinching that may make sense. I can't sleep it's so bad right now- for days. It's particularly the back of my neck and along my spine.... Right now I have on a heavy shirt, turtlrkneck sweater, over sweater, scarf, headband and jacket. I'm laying with a heating pad for my back. I won't see my doctor until Tues.
Avatar_n_tn It is available over the counter at drug stores. It is Guaifenesen, which is the basic component of some expectorant-type cough medicines, but without all the other ingredients. I have had medical doctors and pharmacists tell me this is a very begnign product with no side effects that can be used every day if needed. Take with a large quantitiy of water, as the instructions say. This has worked wonders for me. Good luck.
Avatar_n_tn He told me to take the sudafed that you get behind the counter because he also had the same feelings years ago and after going from doctor to doctor and then finally almost being thrown out I guess maybe he found that it was his sinus'. I recently was sent to have allergy testing done. I have severe allergies to dust mites and I am now getting allergy shots. Also the doctor had a CT scan done which showed maybe chronic sinusitus. I have started taking three-lac.
748543_tn?1443740527 In simple terms incorrect posture is due to a twisted spine, which barring accidents or skeletal abnormalities- like a short leg, is due to an incorrect position of the skull. The position of the skull is influenced by the position of the lower jaw and ultimately the position of the jaw is mandated by the eruption pattern and final position of the teeth. Hence your bite is dictating your posture. Ever wonder why your chiropractic adjustments don't hold for long?
797873_tn?1265740119 Mine is little different because where ever I am at this smell stays in, my room , at work and in my car.. and the smell changes all the time it depends what I eat. I also get thursty If I dont drink water. I start to get a dry throat and mouth... If i drink anything else that is not water my breath gets worse.. please help!
975514_tn?1325001538 Wasn't until the Rhumetoligist ruled out MS, that I was told I had Fibromyalgia, roungly 10 years ago. The only releif I can suggest is stay active, the pain meds do nothing but mask over the discomfort. It you belong to a spa or the Y, go with water areobics. The movement gets the joints and tendons active and the warm water seems to ease the discomfort. Also, try deep breathing exercises and learn how to control your pain.
Avatar_n_tn So,they is no infection,no dermatitis that can be seen,no urine infection,what can be causing all this????. Can anyone offer any advice again please,on possible cause,over the counter treatment I can use(no creams),any help is appreciated .
Avatar_f_tn Treatment for each type is different and cannot be always started by the patient, i.e., not with over the counter medications. If your headache is very severe, please consult your doctor. Please come back if you have any other queries.
Avatar_n_tn I have no problem getting it checked out by a dermitologist, but I'd rather try out an over-the-counter home medication first, if at all possible. Thanks!
Avatar_m_tn It appeared to be due to the changes in the salivary glands as well as the low WBC while on treatment. I bought the biotene products for him (lozenges, mouthwash, toothpaste, spray, etc.) to help with the dry mouth. He had to have some dental work done, so I asked the dentist to put him on an antibiotic before the work. Also, watch for signs of an oral yeast infection ("thrush") that might require an antifungal medication.
Avatar_m_tn I always do double the fluid intake with my kids as that keeps the mucus thinned out. there is an over the counter med called mucinex. Our doctor (and now me as well) swears by this, It is an expectorant which means that it also keeps the mucus moving. A sinus infection develops because the 'gunk' gets thick and just sits and festers becoming full of bacteria. We get the 'mini melts' in bubble gum flavor of the mucinex and both my boys will take this.
Avatar_n_tn The only other unusual health situation was that about one month before the discharge began I had a gum infection and my dentist gave me 10 day penisilin treatment, which cleared up the gum infection. I am not taking any medication (only calcium vitamins).
