  • really seems related to the dental visit...could be you need a very long dose of a different antibiotic to treat the infection; also could be mercury spread--a symptom is a rash of mercury poison...perhaps you should see an oral surgeon to see if there were any problems with the extractions.

  • What medication are you on for the joint pain?, can you list the meds they have tried before? Does direct sunlight feel funny on your skin?
