Brief Answer:
complete medical history required.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome.

As per history posted here it appears that you have developed recurrent infections post extraction.It could be due to viral or bacterial origin. You can also suspect candidal infections.

In my clinical experience i have seen such cases occurs mostly with patients having history of diabetes, hypertension or with immuno-compromised patients.

Therefore before coming to any diagnosis, I would request you to please write to me regarding your medical history.

It would be nice if you can go for a simple blood test too and send me your reports.

Are you taking any medication presently for any other problem than dental issues? If so please mention.

Meanwhile please maintain good oral hygiene. You can use antiseptic mouth wash for a period of two weeks. This will reduce the infection to large extent by local action.

Awaiting your response.


Take care.
