DH came home early from work with dibilitating pain on the right side of his face.
He has a MASSIVE headache. -exedrin didn't help
He thinks it might be a tooth infection, as his jaw & side of his face is all swollen.....
I have some keflex here that I was prescribed a while back & cant take because of my bowel issues (Crohn's) But Will it work for a bacterial infection in the mouth? ie. Tooth infection?? ANYONE KNOW!????
info: Keflex

Keflex works great, although it'd be good to have him checked out, to make sure it's actually a tooth that hurts and not his salivary glands, etc. If that's impossible, the dosing for Keflex is 500mg four times a day, for probably at least a week given how severe the infection sounds.

Good luck.

I'm glad he's seeing a dentist- then he can get an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment (hopefully)!

Eeexxcellent. Hope he's on the mend soon! (You're right, though, Keflex is a wonder drug. )
