    Suffering from the stupid dry socket :(

    Hi guys,
    I am suffering from dry socket. This is really annoying. I read this health article in attempt of trying to figure out which ways is the best one to treat this symptom.
    It recommends a lots, I will copy those tips quickly. Let's have a look.
    1. Ice

    One of the simplest, but most effective natural home remedies for dry socket is cold compress, which refers to the use of ice cubes or cold water. The coldness from ice can affect the nerves and help you escape from the severe pain immediately [4][5].

    If you use ice cubes, keep some of them in a cloth and apply the cloth over the areas affected by dry socket for several minutes.

    Another simple way to get rid of dry socket is to use cold water.

    A thin and soft towel should be soaked in cold water and squeezed.
    It should be kept over the painful areas in about 15 minutes.
    You can apply this method 3-4 times on a daily basis.
    2. Clove

    With anesthetic and analgesic qualities that help ease the pain effectively, clove is one of the best natural home remedies for dry socket. You should use this remedy before the pain spreads to the head and causes a lot of discomforts. To quicken the treatment, you should get the clove oil [6].

    While applying ice cubes or cold water directly on the dry socket might even worsen the situation, the opposite is true of tea bags. They can be placed immediately on the areas affected by dry socket without the help of cloth or cotton ball. The presence of tannic acid which is effective for reducing pain makes it perfect to become one of the most powerful natural home remedies for dry socket [7].
