Pros: Takes the tooth pain and feeling of a 'risen tooth' away
Cons: Tastes like cloves, stings a little bit, but not bad.
I have a broken and decaying abcessed molar that was scheduled for root canal a year ago, but due to lay off and loss of benefits, it went untreated. It flares up once in a while and after good care of it, usually goes away in a few days.
This week it started up again, and the worst episode yet. The pain had me literally burying my face into the pillow this morning and screaming followed by an hour long crying like a baby episode.I was holding my mouth, walking around the house saying, 'omg please go away PLEASE!' The precribed pain killers and Anbesol wasn't even touching it. I seriously wanted to be knocked unconscious.
This morning I read online about this product and sent my boyfriend out for it. I put it on as directed, and about half an hour later, it began to settle. Now, 4 hours later the pain in the tooth is gone, however, I now realize that the abscess has spread into my neck and that is the only thing that is aching right now. But it is to the point were I can handle it, and as long as I dont eat or talk too much, I really cannot feel it. It was the tooth pain that was making it unbearable and now that the tooth pain is eliminated, I can sleep tonight...the first time in 3 days.
This stuff is a godsend...I didn't think it would work, but it did. Now I can take an Aleve for the neck pain and it works. An hour after application, I was finally able to get out of bed.
