Have You Ever Seen A Kid Complain About His Aching Tooth?

How would you feel if your son cried in the middle of the night when most of you are already half asleep and he starts crying because of an infected tooth?

If you have Clove Oil, that is a topical pain reliever that is suitable for in the mouth use. It is the active ingredient in tooth/gum pain relief OTC remedy like the product "Numzit" for teething pains.

There is also a accupressure point on the palm of the hand that relieves tooth/jaw pain. An imaginary line drawn thru the lower part of the web of skin between thumb and pointer-finger, and ring finger. Right there.

Google "accupressure point for tooth pain" or similar, -I've seen this before online (and previously knew of it and surely it does work.)

I would wait till moring, but he needs to see a dentist.  You might use some aspirin or other kid formulated pain medication.  If he has an infected tooth, I would feel like it was my responsibility to get him relief.
