A Clove For A Toothache

I never knew that clove is a toothache relief. I came home yesterday with a toothache. Told my husband about it. That time it was just starting. He came at night and told me to put a “clove” where it’s aching. I couldn’t bear the taste but I did. I was relieved for a while. It actually numbs and cools your gum. But when I woke up, the pain was still there.
Now, I doubt if it’s a toothache…. When I try to open my mouth, it hurts like hell especially on my left jaw. It couldn’t be mumps bcoz I didn’t have a high fever. I just hope there’ll be no phone calls today waaaaaaaaaaaah!

    It’s bcoz of the after taste maybe. I just had to do it coz I didn’t have a choice :-(.

    It’s actually my gum that is more aching, not the tooth kasi buong-buo naman sya. I can still munch on things pero masakit when I open my mouth.
