I have recently been prescribed Penicillin Vk 500 mg from a doctor. I was in SO much pain from my peridontal disease,(from my infection under my teeth), that the pain was excruciating. i went to an emergency hospital instead of a dentist. I have looked up this medication and it describes this certain medication to be used for throat, not an infection. Is this right? have you heard of anyone else being prescribed this medicine for a gum? mouth problem?

This is a general antibiotic, it is used to treat many different types of infection, not just those of the throat or any other specific part of the body.

I took it many times for dental infections.

Here's a link to the monograph for more information:


Broad spectrum antibiotics, such as this one, can be used to treat many infectious problems, they do not treat any one specific problem or type.

You don't just take one pill of an antibiotic. This is very harmful for your body. If a doctor prescribed an antibiotic, you need to take ALL the pills in the allotted time period. If you stop taking antibiotics before the pills are gone, your infection will actually worsen and you will build a resistence to antibiotics. DON'T

Hi!! I'm so sorry!! The absolute best pain relief is pure Clove oil. Some pharmacies have it but you can get it at a health store for very little money. I'm using it for strep throat right now. Get a q-tip and put the oil on the q-tip and onto your tooth. If you have a whole in your tooth, put in it. If you touch your tongue, it will become a little numb. Since it's you're first time, get a little oil, dip the q-tip in the oil and then pour Clive oil on it and rub the gum underneath the tooth or put on top. It's a life saver!!!

Penicillin is an antibiotic. You DO NOT EVER take just one or even just a few of ANY antibiotic. Antibiotic have no pain-killing properties aside from ultimately getting rid of the cause of the pain (infection, etc) over time, but they are not going to give you instant relief like an opiate-based pain pill would.

Furthermore, by taking just one or a few antibiotic pills, you are now introducing the bacteria to that antibiotic, but only killing off the weaker bacteria.. This leaves behind the strongest bacteria which then develop a resistance to that antibiotic, making it far less useful, if not useless, in the future. So please, do not EVER take antibiotics unless you have a sufficient amount of them to run the full course (generally 2-4 times a day of however many mgs prescribed, for 10-14 days, but it all depends on the specific drug and your doctors recommendations.)

Yes - it seems to be used often for dental infections, abscesses, etc. I am currently on it for an infected and fractured tooth and because I have a recent hip replacement that they don't want the infection to travel to.

I have bad teeth also I went through it many many times over 30 years and when I have pain from that the antibiotics aren't good to take too many of because there's a lot of side effects but it does take care of the infection for your teeth because you can poison your whole body from tooth infection I know because I went to the hospital with no blood pressure no faults and I had an infection through my whole body to where all my organs were failing so take them for a week or however long the doctor prescribed and then to get your teeth fixed so you don't have to go through what I did
