It started about 2 weeks ago, then it went away, now its back worse then it was before. Just under my right eye is swelled up and painful to the touch. I can feel with my tongue where it is swelled up. And it hurts pretty bad. I have had no activity on my face or mouth. One day it just swelled up. I'm wondering if its an Abscess tooth? I'm a 23 yo male. My dental hygiene isn't the greatest. I brush about 4 times a week maybe. Please help!

  • I know it's been a long time since you posted -- did you ever find out what this was?My only home remedy for pain that might be related to dental hygiene is pretty easy: get some mouthwash in your mouth, and then brush your teeth (especially gum lines) while the mouthwash is still in there.This seems to make gum pain and tenderness go away more quickly than just toothpaste alone.
