If the bacteria entered into blood stream from any source/ abscess it can be very leathal. Can cost one's life if not taken immediate action. It can cause infective endocarditis in already compromised person. Septic shock is another severe problem. How to manage it? Visit a specialist medical / dental professional ASAP. Timely visit and multiple antibiotics with life saving drugs can reverse the condition.
