Hello, so sorry to hear about your situation.
Antibiotics would be "IDEAL" to get from your Dentist or Doctor, yes!
And, also pain mediation from your Dentist or Doctor as well. Alternatively, you could use (either one - your choice) either 1000mg Tylenol every 6 hours. Or, 800mg Ibuprofen every 6 hours for pain. Some Medical articles, suggest that alternating taking Tylenol as the first dosage, and then switching to Ibuprofen for the second dose, actually "helps" with pain relief. However, I've not found this to be of great significance.
But, in a nutshell: Yes, I'd get some antibiotics going ASAP, and also a pain medication. And, of course, see your Dentist for the quickest pain relief - to have the abscess drained - for RELIEF! I hope this helps you...
