Hello, Iris! How are you? Sorry about your daughters toothache.

However, Amoxicillin is not a pain medication, it is an antibiotic that's used to treat or prevent bacterial infections, so it will not relieve the pain. The only way it will help is if her pain is caused by an infection and even then, it will take several days to help.

Learn more Amoxicillin details here.

And if it isn't an infection, giving it to her creates the risk of her developing antibiotic resistant bacteria, which could be very dangerous.

Thus, it is best to take her to a doctor or dentist, as soon as possible, for proper diagnosis and treatment, rather than trying to treat her yourself.

Is there anything else I can help with?
