Hello,

I had this tooth in the picture removed 5 days ago because it was rotten and dead and had pus at the root. The next day after the extraction more pus took place in the hole-socket along with blood clots so my dentist gave me some antibiotics. 4 days later(today) I still have pain and the socket now seems kind of empty(only a little amount of pus is left here and there) as you can see in the picture.

Is this a dry socket? And what should I do, it's been a week of pain :(
