Hello, thanks for using HCM.
ESR and CRP are both markers of inflammation. While ESR is a general marker, CRP is more specific to an infection. Amoxicillin
is an antibiotic and is not known to increase ESR nor CRP. Tooth extraction will not cause increase in ESR nor CRP but the underlying cause for extracting the tooth ( if infectious ) could be the cause. Tooth infections include infections of the dental pulp or tooth itself, infection of the surrounding bone which causes a dental abscess
and infection of the surrounding gum which is usually a cause of wisdom tooth extraction
. You mentioned you had abdominal pain
prior to your tests; these could be due to an infection of your gut and could also account for why your ESR and CRP are elevated. However, a detail and chronological medical history and appropriate evaluation is needed in order to say what accounted for the elevation in ESR and CRP. The following information could be helpful; the chronology of events, example: abdominal pains, diarrhoea, ESR and CRP, toothache, extraction; the reason for the extraction (abscess?) etc
