after effects of infected tooth

am new on here and have used homepathy for myself for various things but the other week my son ended up in hospital with an infection from a tooth that could not be controlled by normal antibiotics. As I live somewhere fairly remote I did not have the facility to treat him with homeopathy. He ended up having a strong antibiotic that is used for menengitis to stop the infections. I was wondering if any of the doctors on the forum have any feedback about after treatment to prevent any further damage to his system ?
Grateful for any comments.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
is it the tooth or the gum which is infcted.

now that you have started a strong anti biotic, you need to finish the course.

meanwhile a luke warm rinse of light solution of potassium per manganete ( KMnO4) would also help in containing the infection.

as far as a homeopathic treatment is concerned, its beeter if you give the sensations and suffering with modalities in your own words.

a suitable remedy may be recommended based on your description.

the infection has now gone but his whole face was badly swollen with redness under the eye on that side. He had temperatures of 39 degrees with a great dela of restlessness and constantly wanting to go home . When he became sensitive to the lights in the room and needed them turning out, that was when they changed to the strong antibiotics. He temperature then came down fairly quickly and he was quite cold that night ( I was sleeoing with him in the hospital ) and the next day he was a lot better . Obviously we will finish the antibiotics but I wondered if there is a remedy that would give the blood a thorough ' clense ' after evrything it has gone through the last 2 weeks . My son ( 9 years old ) is now OK and back at school

He has had 2 teeth taken out ( both milk teeth ) all swelling etc has now gone, if it hadn't they wouldn't have let us out of hospital !
Both teeth were in pretty bad shape for some reason so now they are both out he is pain free and all swelling and redness has gone .

in general to avoid recurrance of similar infections or weakening of the vital force, a constitutional remedy can be suggested based on his totality of symptoms and personality type.

now, that your son has no symptoms related to the tooth infection, a specific remedy for prevention of tooth infections cannot be suggested.
