    Hi everyone,

    Not sure if anyone can give me some help or advice please?

    The week before last I had an abscess on my gum (prob my own fault for having a weekend off!!) and was given anti-biotics.
    It cleared up for a bit but then came back and I had to make an emergency appt Sunday afternoon to get it drained and my tooth out (yuk! at least it stops me thinking about eating!)

    I've been taking ibuprofen and paracetamol and have a hot water bottle on my gum but it still hurts :cry:

    Can I put Bonjela on the open wound? Will it kick me out of ketosis if I do?

    Hey

    Sorry to hear you are in pain - that sucks !

    Not sure about the answers to your questions, but this may help :

    Bonjela gel FAQ's - from the mouth ulcer experts

    Says you can use Bonjela on mouth ulcers and denture sores etc - guess they are open wounds of sorts...

    hope

    I can't see how Bonjela will throw you out of ketosis, unless you intend to eat the tubes. :(

    Thank you. It's sugar freen so I can slather it on to my heart's content.

    In the meantime I'm sat with a hot water bottle on my face and watching Robin Hood and lusting after Guy of Gisborne!!

    Hi EFK
    If the pain continues, the dentist can pack it out with something that helps healing. I can`t remember what the stuffs called, but I had it a week or so after a wisdom extraction, and the pain went within the hour.

    Brilliant, thank you. I'm going to see how I get on and will be going back to work tomorrow as the swelling has gone down a bit.
