The other important thing is to be sure the wound heals from the inside out. Sometimes, the superficial layers of skin heal first, and bacteria gets closed in to the wound, therefore, creating a horrible infection. Oral antibiotics are usually necessary, and how about a tetanus shot? Have you had one recently?? You really need to watch this!!! Even if it feels better today compared to yesterday, that doesn't mean an infection is not brewing. Pain in the jaw can be a sign of tetanus.
