Thanks for all the suggestions. I have solved this problem.
Hello to my Care2 friends. I hate to ask this of you all but I really need help.
I have a very painful infection in my gum/face and my Doctor says I need to take antibiotics. Because of my medical condition I am allergic to many drugs and am terrified of antibiotics. Penicillin almost killed me 25 years ago, other antibiotics just make me more sick. In fact my body has only tolerated one drug in the last 25 years, novacaine.
I would love to know of any natural antibiotics any of you know of. I have been in horrendous pain since Friday morning and cannot take painkillers either. Right now I look like a deranged lop sided chipmunk with a huge swelling on one side of my face. If the infection travels to any other part of my face or neck then I will have no choice but to take the antibiotic my Doctor wants me to take. That would be my last choice because I fear it will do more harm than good. I would prefer a more natural remedy because I am far less likely to die from a natural product.
Hoping someone can help
Love and Peace
