A few years back one of my lower left molars got infected (very painful) and I had a root canal done on that tooth. About two years ago I chipped/broke the tooth by chewing on something hard, and have had recurrent infections ever since. They've never been painful because of the root canal I guess.
Anyway, long story short, for the past 18 months I've had extensive health problems, parasites, candida, and in particular a really really bad sinus/ear infection which is predominantly on the left side (sure it's candida, but bacteria may be involved too)
I had the tooth removed a couple of months ago by my new dentists but a few days after two lumps with white tips formed on the extraction site, looking like they were draining something. I phoned him and didn't seem too concerned. I made sure I was regularly rinsing with salt water/oregano oil etc and it went away.
About a month ago I noticed that on the inside of my bottom jaw bone (near the extraction site) is a big lump. It's not painful, maybe slightly tender, it's hard but moves around slightly when I push on it. I'm thinking the infection never really went away. One of my glands is still up on the left side too, and has been since this all started.
So, the extraction site has now closed over. I was just wondering what you guys think of this, and whether there is anything I can do (since the site has closed over) to get rid of this infection without dental surgery? I'm due to go away on holiday for 5 weeks in a months times so it's going to be over two months before I can do anything about this if I need a hospital referral, which takes time in the UK.
