For the last few days I've had a niggling toothache, of course the Irn Bru (aka bag of sugar in a can) I use to take my daily medication is really helping.

I know I'm not doing myself any favours, when it comes to my teeth, but please lay off the lectures and oral hygiene comments - I don't need them right now.

The problem is that for the last 8 hours or so I've had serious toothache. I wakened up about 7pm (I have M.E., I'm allowed to sleep all day lol) with pain in my jaw and the most excruciatingly toothache. I popped a couple of Anadin, which didn't seem to help, but the bottle of wine I washed them down with did. lol Now the toothache has returned.

Ideally I would phone the dentist when they open, however, since it's my birthday (a day to forget at my age ) my mum and dad have planned a day out for me. They're picking me up at the train station and taking me out, having lunch, buying me a few drinks (well they'd better be lol), opening my pressies... etc etc - basically the whole day will be spent acting happy.

Now I finally get to the question; where can I buy clove oil and is it any good? Where I get the train there is a tiny wee Boots The Chemist and a Morrisons, will I get clove oil in either?

Failing that, does anyone have any other 'quick fixes' that will rid me of the pain for 1 day?

Clove oil is sold in Boots but only thing i found that helps with toothache is ibuprofen and obviously the dentist as soon as you can. I never found Clove oil to be affective.

Cheers for all the replies, hopefully my tiny wee Boots will sell it.

itsme, I can't take ibuprofen - I knackered my stomach lining with those pills a few years ago whilst nursing a broken foot. An injury I sustained after my boyfriend's racing car ran over said foot. So now it seems it's clove oil or pain, I think I know which I (and my parents) will choose.

ETA: I will phone the dentist on Thursday, I was hoping my teeth would hold out until the 15th - I have a routine appointment then.

Just a word of warning about Clove Oil.

While it is brilliant and does help toothache, you should avoid leaving it in your mouth for a long time as the undiluted oil is quite strong and it can 'eat into' the fleshy areas of your mouth.

Best thing to do is put a few drops on a piece of cotton wool and leave it a few minutes then remove it. Temptation is to leave it there but it can make your jaw and gum go all crinkly and skin may come off (it happened to me that way, anyway).

Why don't you try warmish water with salt in it? I'm sure that works...

Try swilling some vodka round your mouth, that sometimes helps. Then see your dentist. It might just be that you need a filling.

I've just bought some Vodka to try. If it doesn't work I could always smack myself over the head with the bottle, at least the headache might take my mind off the toothache for a while. I know it is a filling I need, I'll phone my dentist in the morning and see if I can get an emergency appointment.

Cunny, I tried the salt water last night and it did seem to help a bit. I put too much salt in the glass though and it tasted vile but if it works it was worth it.

Radiomaniac, the pharmacist advised me not to use too much or use for a prolonged period of time. You're right though, if he hadn't told me that I would have left it in much longer. That's all I would need, dodgy gums to add to my problems.

Thanks again for all your replies.

ETA: I know it's only been about 20 minutes since my Vodka mouthwash but it's already taken the pain away. Acer you're ... well... ACE!

Morrisons supermarket sells a Clove Oil gel product safe for prolonged use.
