Today, I have a tooth infection that's spread to my jaw and ear. It hurts so badly that I'm practically in tears. Today's also the day I found out I'm allergic to the medication I was prescribed. Everything hurts, I'm covered in hives, and I can't stop throwing up. FML

I don't necessarily think they deserved it. But usually the cause of an infected tooth is bad hygiene. And it has to be left un treated for a pretty long time to get this bad. Usually. I don't know the entire situation. But I think that's what some people are thinking that are giving ydi.

There are a ton if different med options. If you are allergic to one doesn't mean you are to all. There are a lot of antibiotics that either don't work for me or I cannot tolerate. I get sick a lot. It just takes patience and working with the doc to find the right one. And I know patience can be in short supply when you are sick. At least op knows about the allergy to that class if drugs for next time

#40_Patience is a minor form of despair disguised as a virtue.

50- Sorry this is irrelevant everyone, but to 50, I just wanted to tell you that (if that's your dog in the picture) it's so adorable :)
I had two beagles that I loved that got out 2 years ago:( miss them.

OP, today will be horrible as you've already experiences, but once you get medications that you aren't allergic and wait a few days for the tooth infection to heal, you'll be feeling a lot better. It can go nowhere but up. :)

#52_Totally irrelevant, but the pic is not of my beloved Monster Beagle. My hound is much cuter...but doesn't do pics. So, this was the next best thing. Love Beagles :)


I feel you OP. i had a throat infection recently, and then an allergic reaction to the antibiotic. Then like a week later i took a different antibiotic for a different reason and was allergic to that too. The hives came back, and i spent all day vomiting. It sucks, but as long as you drink lots of water and flush it out of your system, it doesn't last forever.

Was thinking the same thing. When you're in agonizing pain and your medicine causes allergic reactions, it's time to take a trip to the hospital.

Try and use hot compresses for the pain. Also, for the hives, calamine lotion and NSAIDs like Aleve or Motrin. They will help relieve some of the inflammation
