Hello doctor,

I am having pain in my mouth (cheeks) for the past two days. I am unable to open my mouth fully. The previous night I gave a long blowjob session (approximately 10-15 minutes) to my partner. Since then I am feeling too much pain. I am unable to eat anything. Please suggest some medicine.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

It could be due to infection in the lower wisdom tooth area. This occurs when the lower third molar, wisdom tooth starts coming out. If there is less space for it, then the food starts accumulating beside it. Use warm salt water gargle three times a day for a week.


1. Amoxicillin 500 mg three times a day for three days.

2. Flamar (Diclofenac sodium) three times a day for three days.

Consult a dentist.

Send a picture of the area if possible, for a detailed treatment plan.
