Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 3 months ago

yes, an infected or impacted tooth can cause bacteria in the gums and decay of your gum tissue which can cause bad odor and bad breath

you have to see a dentist about this and maybe get that tooth extracted

you should gargle and swish with salt water as much as you can to kill infection and bacteria in your mouth.

when can you get in to see a dentist?

Maybe not till tomorrow afternoon I'm taking amoxicillin will this kill the infection
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 3 months ago

amoxicillin can help keep the infection in control and can prevent spread of infection into your blood stream

but the tooth and source of infection has to be removed to solved the problem and pain

take the amoxicillin with food in your stomach and also take a probiotic pill and eat some yogurt to prevent diarrhea from the antibiotic.

keep rinsing with salt water 6-8 times a day if you can.

that is good you are seeing a dentist tomorrow

How can I manage the taste of pus in the mean time?
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 3 months ago

you need to rinse and gargle a lot with salt water to fight the bacteria and pus in the mouth.

you can use 1pint of water and 1tsp of salt, sugar and baking soda in the water

you can add more salt in it if you want to as well.

and rinse frequently.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
