I am 28 years old. I have a toothache and abscess from last 15 days. Tell me the medicine.

If it's an abscess, it requires immediate treatment. You can contact a dentist giving emergency dental care at this point of time. If you have already been to a dentist earlier, contact them, as they wouy be knowing your medical history / drug allergy, which is required for prescribing a medication.
You can take over the counter pain killer. Abscess would need a course of antibiotic that you should get a prescription of from your dentist/doctor. Then further treatment to save or remove the tooth can be carried out in future.
