Try a hospital emergency department, abscesses can be serious. Most hospitals have dental clinics attached.

I have lost two fillings, fortunately no pain. I was told to come back if I had severe pain, then they would treat me.

As above

 

IV antibiotics is an option and will work more quickly

Have you tried Kamillosan spray? It was given to me when I had mouthsores. Also, I had gingivitis last year and so I couldn't go for a tooth extraction yet. I was given Hexetidine and the inflammation went away in 3 days. Molar got extracted the following week. Thantakit Dental Center is brilliant. They went above and beyond to help and comfort me as I was also in agony at the time. They were very responsive. Everything went perfectly well. Maybe try Hexetidine and see if the pain and inflammation go away? You may continue with the antibiotic so infection won't progress further but with your urine situation, best to ask your doctor about it. Keep yourself hydrated. Good luck and hope you feel better soon.

If they try to extract while still have abscess the Xylocaine will just be absorbed by the infected tissue and not offer any pain relief (been there as a child).  The oil of clove is a lifesaver in my experience when no medical attention was available for several months.

Yes, agree about oil of Cloves, but where can you get it in Thailand?

cannot do extraction untill decay goes away

He could not have meant that...decay does not go away...antibiotics will not fix your problem...in fact they should only be used as an adjunct to extraction or treament to prevent further infection to surrounding areas during post-op recovery. find a new dentist or bring a translator

I’ve been down that same road with two molars, no fun to say the least! According to my dentist the reason why they can’t extract the tooth while it is still inflamed is because the anesthetic won’t work because of the inflammation and the pain of getting the tooth pulled would be too extreme! 
 

The antibiotic which worked best for me was Metronidazol. That killed the inflammation after taking it for only 7 days without it coming back after 2 weeks, which happens twice with the previous antibiotic I was prescribed.

 

I hope you’ll get it sorted as quickly as possible and I wish you a speedy recovery!

He meant inflammation. It’s true that antibiotics won’t fix the problem, but they’ll make the inflammation go away and then the tooth can be pulled, which will be the end of the problem.
 

I had an abscess that would just keep coming back after taking antibiotics. My dentist advised me to get the two molars pulled which would solve the problem. Stupid me wanted to hang on to my teeth so I took the antibiotic in the hope it would solve the problem. Needless to say it didn’t. After a year of inflammation after inflammation I finally gave in and had them pulled. Since then no more problem.

Forget Azithromycin...it's not for dental issues.

If Amoxicillin isn't working, you need to step up to Metronidazole tablets.

They are specifically described for tooth infection and many docs give them after

root canal as prophyalxis.

Get the highest strength and take one, twice a day.

It also comes in dental gel form...called Metrogyl DC....make sure it says oral use on the tube.

A great painkiller is Arcoxia (etoricoxib)...very powerful, pain goes in minutes.

 

Good luck...tooth issues in these times suck.

Yeah, Metronidazol is absolutely brilliant for this application! I was prescribed other antibiotics before, they didn’t  even come close!

I had an abscess back in January, (infection from a tooth extraction) and the dentist - like yours, gave me three days supply of anti-biotics, amoxycillin. Useless! I had the same problem as you.

I went to my usually trustworthy pharmacy, here in Chiangmai. She gave me the '500 Amoxy M.H.' - Red brand details on the back - shiny orange color plastic covering on the front, tablets are yellow/red (each end). 10 tablets per strip.

Two in the morning, after breakfast - 2 after dinner, evening. 

She happily gave me 10 days supply.

I even purchased another 5 days supply. Problem resolved.

I also have a supply here in front of me as I write - in case!

Brief flare up a while later - purchased another 10 day's supply.

No problems since.

Good luck - it' is agony, I agree. pm me if you live in CM and I will give you the well known, foreigner orientated pharmacy name and location, OK?

For tempory releilfe, keep numbing it with ice cubes...not ideal but gives a break from the pain

Gargling several times a day with salt solution will also help.
