My dragon is having mouth infection

We have visited vet last Wed, vet prescribed:

1. antibiotics med
2. anti-inflammation med
3. mouth wash (something like listerine dilute with water)

Already on med for 6 days, tmr will be 7th and the maximum vet advice to take

For mouth wash, we did it for 5 days, but I'm very worried if we did it right because everyday after wash he will show movement like hiccup and swallow, beard and tail dark to the max. There's one day I heard sound like hissing but I'm not sure.

I'm very worried did he swallow the mouth wash solution, so we stopped today

But his mouth is still look very bad, so we had no choice but to apply betadine on the affected area, and diluted betadine on the rest of the gums

His mouth keep having a lot of saliva (not sure saliva or mucus). I think so long his mouth not dry the infection is not cleared

So my question is except the medication and betadine, is there anything else I can do to improve the situation?

Is there method can teach me to clear his saliva? I keep feeling it is the issue that stopping the improvement

We plan to bring him back to vet on coming Wed

I see some excess saliva but no infection. What did you think was infected ? A gum infection would show red, irritated gums of cheesy build up on the teeth.
Excess saliva can be present at times in any animal at times, especially after eating , drinking or being given meds.

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
