painkiller help - allergies
Hi unusual request but I have to get jaw surgery on monday as I have a tooth infection thats in the bone. Paracetamol isnt helping, im in agony. On antibiotics too.
Im allergic to asprin cocodamol and ibuprofen. What can I take thats stronger than normal paracetamol?
Thanks for reading!!
Hello Hanngun. You poor thing. That sounds so painful. Im sorry I cant think of a suggestion for painkillers but when my partner was in severe pain after a wisdom tooth extraction, he was advised that using something cold against his face would help. He had been using a heated wheat bag but with infection that is no good. He used a freezer block and it did ease the pain for a while. Im sorry I cant be of more help. Hope it eases soon.
Thank you for the advice I'll give it a shot thanks x

Sorry no help at all, oh just a thought, could you rub some ibuprofen gel on your skin directly where the pain is? I can use this & it works.

I was going to suggest tramadol but it's prescription only. It's a shame you're allergic to codeine because it's a very effective painkiller
You'd be better of having a quick chat with your GP or pharmacist and seeing what they'd recommend xx
Gah, was going to suggest soluable co-codamols but you can't have them Hope you're feeling better now!
Clove oil would numb it - make sure you only put a little bit on a cotton wool ball first, don't pour it in cos it's nasty tasting (!)
Swilling with whiskey around the affected area would help too. Ditto cleaning your teeth as often as you can stand, I always find the toothpaste helps ease it.
