Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

You may have an abscess with infection. You need antibiotics along with painkillers like Tylenol. Get an early appointment with your dentist and get an X-ray done to find which wisdom tooth or other molars are infected. You may need extraction or root canal treatment for it.
