abcess of a milk tooth - antibiotics not worked?

Took my ds to the dentist last week as he had been complaining of a sensitive tooth when he ate. Looked in his mouth and could see a hole so trotted off to have it checked out.

Dentist had a look said it was infected and put him on antibiotics for a week with the view to filling it tomorrow.

He came down last night to say he had a "bubble" on his gum and there is a huge lump on his gum by the poorly tooth shock.

Does this mean the antibiotics haven't worked? Will it need drained? He's not in any pain from it at all which seems weird and seems strangely fascinated by this bubble. Eating and drinking fine.

Any ideas what happens next?
