Recurring huge abscesses in mouth on jaw gum, have sore throat, blocked nose, thick mucus, tiredness. Remedial measure?

I had a Huge abscess in my mouth on my jaw gum, by huge I mean from visually from outside my mouth it was the size of my fist, it burst over night about a week ago but it is filling up with pus again every half an hour, I am trying my best to blot it every half hour so I don t ingest it but obviously cannot when asleep, I have now got a very sore throat and coughing up thick mucus and a very blocked nose , also very tired and snappy! I have made a doc appointment but can t get in till Friday, am I ok till then because I am very worried, I have been taking ibrobufen every 8 hours for pain but never seen so much pus come out every half hour! I am the sort of person who takes a lot of pride in my personal care and have a high pain threshold but I am worried. Please answer me back, I have also never used a computer before so if you do not respond I will understand I have done this wronge. Thank you for listening if you receive this I would be greatfull if you could respond.

hello and welcome to HCM,

You must be complemented on tolerating so much pain, if you are saying that you have such a huge abscess as your fist then when it bursts it would have been extremely painful.

Although you are doing everything right you need to definitely start an antibiotic therapy as soon as possible which can also be initiated by the pus culture and sensitivity.

If the pain is severe then you need to start injectable medications also

After the infection subsides you need to be investigated further to find out the cause and give you a permanent relief

take care and get well soon
