Help me to get rid of my toothache

You can try to gargle with salt water. That's what I read on the internet. When I had swollen gum, I tried that and it helped. Abt 2 mths ago, I had quite a bad toothache and I tried taking painkillers but it didn't help. So, I tried to apply Hisamitsu cooling pad (from Watson's pharmacy; but it might be available in other pharmacies as well) on the side of the face (ie. where the toothache was) and it worked! Such pads can be used for multiple purposes (one of them is to help in toothache).

That happens to me some times too. I would take Advil when it happens. Advil is an excellent pain killer. And, I also frequently gargle with Lysterine. That kills the germs which are causing tooth aches. There are different types of Lysterine, as you know. You can choose the flavor you like.
