Well..This Is FANTASTIC!

Hey y’all!

So I’ve had a toothache for the past week and I was taking amoxicillin and ibuprofen until the dentist could see me for an appointment. Well the past two days my face has been swelling HORRIBLY! Andy and I thought that I had a horrible tooth infection or something going on. So the dentist could finally see me this morning, with my face looking like I swallowed a five pound bag of potatoes.

Well it turns out, that there is a little bit of infection in the tooth, but nowhere near enough to make it swell up like it has. Apparently, I’m allergic to amoxicillin. I did not know that, I’ve been taking it as an antibiotic my entire life.

But the dentist said that we can develop new allergies as we get older. So by taking the amoxicillin, thinking I was doing something good to help a little bit, I was actually doing myself more harm.

So now I have a different antibiotic and he wrote me a prescription for some other pain medication, and that’s supposed to get rid of the infection and swelling until I get to the dentist again and can get the tooth pulled. I’m also on Benadryl for the allergic reaction.

You guys!!! I did not need another thing I’m allergic too- there’s already a book of things.

But that’s been my week 🙂 Hopefully yours is going much better.
