A tooth infection or tooth abscess is the buildup of bacteria and pus in and around the teeth. A tooth infection can affect teeth and gums and cause pain that radiates to the jaw, neck, and even the ear.
If left untreated, tooth infections can become severe and spread to the other parts of the body.
Symptoms of Tooth Infection
A tooth infection can be characterized by signs and symptoms such as;
Sensitivity to cold or hot temperature
An excruciating toothache can be felt in the affected tooth, jawbones, and sometimes till the ear.
Tenderness or swelling in the jaws or neck area
Experience foul-tasting fluid if the abscess ruptures.
A tooth infection requires proper dental treatment. If the tooth abscess ruptures, it might relieve pressure and pain but should not be left untreated. The tooth infection can spread to your jaw and the neck region and cause further complications.
Moreover, an untreated tooth abscess can lead to sepsis, an acute infection that can spread throughout the body.

The insides of our eyelids are lined with a thin, clear tissue known as the conjunctiva. It also lies over the white area (sclera) of our eyes.
Pink eye — also called conjunctivitis or pinkeye — is what happens when the conjunctiva becomes inflamed.
While adults can get it, it’s typically associated with children.
Even though it’s extremely contagious, it isn’t serious if caught and treated in time.
Protecting yourself from any long-term damages of pink eye is as easy as scheduling a pinkeye consultation online and following the doctor’s instructions.
Symptoms of Pink Eye
Common symptoms of pink eye can be observed in one or both eyes:
Thick discharge that can harden into a crust overnight and make it difficult to open your eyes in the morning
Increased light sensitivity
If you’re observing one or more of these symptoms, it’s best to opt for an online consultation for pinkeye so that you don’t need to see your eye doctor in person.
Causes of Pink Eye
Pink eye can be caused by a range of factors, which include:
An allergic reaction
Parasites, fungi, and amoeba
Irritants, like shampoos, chlorine in swimming pools, and dirt
Certain sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) — such as gonorrhea and chlamydia — can also cause pink eye.
