Is my toothache remedy dangerous?

Asked by Crumpet (1785 points ) 1 month ago

I’ve been in agony with toothache for the past few hours, so I decided to invent a slightly drastic remedy.

Firstly I filled my mouth with Jameson’s whiskey and held it there for about 5 minutes, then swallowed.
Then broke a paracetamol tablet in half, crushed it into a fine powder, added a small amount of water to make it into a paste, and rubbed it all over my tooth and surrounding gum.

Finally polished off by two ibuprofen tablets swallowed.

It seems to have eased it for a while at least, but it’s something I can see myself having to repeat every few hours.

Is this a good idea?

Does anyone have any alternative methods?

I can’t see a dentist because it’s gone 8pm.
