So, my 3rd son came to me crying saying his tooth hurts. I know he has a cavity that's pretty deep. So, I called our dentist (who is new and we haven't seen yet) and he told us to put him on antibiotics. This would be his first time with antibiotics.  We do probiotics everyday, so my question is do I up his dose of probiotics and when do I give him that after the antibiotics?

a toochache doesn't mean infection. Man I had swelling for 3 weeks before my dentist gave me antbiotics and I was in pain from eye to neck :(

I'm taking antibiotics for strep throat right now and I'm taking Sacchromyces boulardii probiotic. It is a yeast so it is not affected by the antibiotics at all.
