i learned in school you can use olive oil as a home remedy, be care rinising with salt water, dont do it to hard as this can loosen the clot
you could go to the dentist and have them put dry soclet paste in there, this will save you from having to pack it a few times a day, you could ask them to prescribe the paste to you, its called Triamcinolone
Acetonide 0.1% Dental paste. some dentist will give you some, some wont. but i would ask and dont take no for an answer!
