Abscess tooth on upper right back tooth, plumped on skin. Any ways to pop it ?

I have a abscess tooth no my upper right back tooth. The bump tho got the side of a dime and plumped on my skin more then my gums but I know its an abscess cuz I have went to a dentist and they confirmed it about 6 months ago but I can t afford the surgery. Anyways, it was closer to my skin and my nurse friend told me how I could pop it ne I did and I use alcohol to clean every day but It still randomly drains no matter how much I clean it and I think I my have swallowed some sleeping wit my mouth open cuz some of my face was wet when I woke up

the cause of the abscess seems to be a tooth. if you can't sfford the surgery get rid of that tooth which might not be too costly. alcohol can't be an answer to the problems.
have ofloxacin ornidazole 2 times a day along with acelofenac serratiopeptidase 3 times a day.
use a hexidine mouthwash twice dailt
take care

hello and welcome to HCM forum ,
i would like you to know that pus from the abscess is draining and it might cause the infection to spread to adjacent tissues, therefore it is very important to see a dentist
Infection(pus) won't disappear on its own until the tooth is treated, a dentist knows better on how to treat it, either extraction or root canal treatment might be required.
therefore, avoid poking the abscess by unsterilised means. A complete course of antibiotics and inflammatory medication is needed to resolve the infection completely ,besides dental work.
i hope i answered your query,
i wish you good health,
take care.
