I had a very large abscess a couple of months ago, whole face swelled and the pain and pressure was immense so I really empathise with you! I alternated between ibruprofen and co-codamol which helped and was on 2 antibiotics – it burst on the 4th or 5th day. I woke up with this strange taste in my mouth, pulled on my cheek when I opened my mouth to look and pus shot out of it – after a lot of heaving, I kept doing it and rinsing and the relief was incredible. By the end of the course of antibiotics it had completely disappeared hope you feel better soon, it’s the worst type of pain!
