Dog with Abcess in Gums

I read a similar post about a dog that had teeth removed that had an abcess in its mouth, but my dog has not had any teeth removed, nor do I think she needs that.

She has an abcess in her mouth, on her upper gums just above her 3rd premolar on the right side. It is red and 'cauliflower-like' with a large hole in the middle of it. When you open her mouth and press above the abcess/lesion/or whatever you call that thing, pushing towards it, it pusses and then bleeds a little out of that hole.

The whole right side of her face used to be swollen and she stopped eating for a few days and had no energy; however, she is much better now, having been to a homeopath twice for this since October.

I do not remember what the homeopath gave her for the lesion the first time (although I think it started with an 'S'). That helped tremendously, but it didn't make it go away. However, the swelling in her face subsided and her energy level and desire to eat came back with flying colors.

The second time, which was the end of December, she got 200c of Lyco (that is what is written on the sheet). The pussing stopped for a couple of weeks, but has returned.

She has normal energy and eats well. I think the consistent infection may be because food keeps getting into the hole in the middle of the abcess.

Any ideas on how to treat this to get rid of it? Lucy is a very flighty, submissive dog, if that helps in finding the correct remedy.

I am not schooled in homeopathy but am well-educated, so any responses with good directions are well-received!

Thanks in advance,

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please give Belladonna 30 and Merc Sol 30 alternately, every 2 to 4 hours for a few days. It should help a lot. 4 doses (2 of each) per day will be needed.

Thanks, Reva! Could you be more specific as to how I apply? Do I have her take it orally, or squirt it onto the abcess with an eyedropper?

Also, how much is a dose? Sorry for all the questions, I don't want to do this wrong!

(Update) - Never mind. I figured it out. Thanks for the info!

1 dose is 2 to 4 pellets. You can dissolve in 5 to 10ml of water and drop it in mouth. These medicines are for inside and hence external application is not needed.

For more information, please see my Profile.
