The 7-year-old male presented with a history of teethache and swell of face in left of 1 day. In hospital he was found the second molar in lower left decayed and a granulation had grown out of the hole. He was diagnosed decayed tooth,granulation and inflammation around tooth and suggested to IV drip antibiotics. His parents were unwilling to use drugs and the boy was brought to us to take Tuina massage. His tempreture was 38.2C. His swollen cheek in left looked like a egg of goose but not red. He couldn't speak due to pain. After inquiring we learned he had taken a lot of mutton and some crab in the early day.In TCM, mutton adds fire and crabs bring wind, wind and fire stir up each other. It's advisable to clear away heat and subdue swelling.
