Infection in gum going down to chest. LIQUID ANTIBIOTICS.

Resolved Question:

dear dr many thanks for nice letter . i was rinsing my mouth out with betadine may be thats what got rid of the salty taste . i beleive i was swallowing the poison from my gums and it was going down in to my chest i do not know if the antibiotics have completely cleared it up or that i might need some more but it is still there. i think liquid antibotics would have helped me better than tablets. the tablets dont seem to work on me. can you get liquid antibiotics.? i never used to sweat so i knw its very unusual for me to do so. i am taking vitamin c again so i hope that gets rid of it. thankyou for your care and advice yours sincerely polly. :)
