Droxyl

I have been given this tablet for my dental infection . I am feeling tooth sensation and pain in one of my teeth . will that help me ? ## Hi nazleen, The active ingredient in Droxyl is Cefadroxil, which is an antibiotic used for dental infections. The tooth sensation and pain is most likely being caused by an infection of the nerve endings in your tooth (I've had a similar problem before) and the antibiotics job is to kill the infection- so it should help, but it's impossible to know for certain since medication effects everyone differently. Also, I recommend taking a pro-biotic while on the antibiotic. Since antibiotics kill bacteria (good and bad) it is important to reinstate good bacteria into the body so your immune system isn't at risk. Note: All thoughts and opinions e...

Cefadroxil

I have a wisdom tooth coming in that has caused an infection around the tooth, can cefadroxil help? ## Cefadroxil is a broad spectrum, Cephalosporin class antibiotic, so it does help with various types of infections. Learn more about Cefadroxil Details here. The main questions, however, are....have you consulted a doctor or dentist, so the presence of an infection has been confirmed? The reason I'm asking is due to the fact that having a wisdom tooth coming in may cause soreness, or pain to the area, that isn't necessarily from an infection and, if that is the case, then an antibiotic shouldn't be used. However, if there really is an infection present, as confirmed by a doctor, or dentist, then you do need an antibiotic, but it also needs to be enough for a full course of tr...
