Hi there,[br>[br>So about 6.5 weeks ago my 1 year old grabbed inside my mouth with his fingers and scratched my gums behind my lower front teeth. It bled for several minutes, and I accidentally hurt it again eating a tortilla chip a few days after the initial incident. [br>
[br>I swished salt water after it happened, but have recently been using Peridex left over from wisdom tooth surgery due to the fact my teeth are in poor shape.[br>
Now, I just finished a 5 day regimen of Zithromax (a "z pack") due to an upper respiratory infection. I went to the ER to ask about the cut on my mouth that's still there. The ER doc says he sees the jagged edge of where my son cut my mouth, but nothing else.It doesn't look ulcerated, nor does it have a pustule, he says. He said it may be scar tissue and it'll never go away, or they may be lingering infection.

How much time am I actually supposed to give this?[br>Thanks for the input.
