You are suffering from wisdom tooth eruption problem. In such cases , because of lack of space in your jaw or due to malalignment of wisdom tooth, the area around the wisdom tooth gets infected, the surrounding gums get inflammed and swells and the patient suffers from pain, difficulty in mouth opening, difficulty in swallowing, headache, fever, extra oral swelling. This condition is called as acute Pericoronitis. However your case does not seem to be acute and there is not much swelling and infection as such.
Next Steps
Do frequent warm saline water mouthwash and continue for 15 days. Take a painkiller like Zerodol P twice daily for 3 days. There is no need to take antibiotics as of now. Apply Rexidine M forte gel locally with clean fingertip on the affected area thrice daily.
Health Tips
After Lockdown, visit the dentist. He wil be the best judge to decide whether the wisdom tooth should be extracted or a simple operculectomy can be performed, after thorough clinical and radiological examination.

It is operculum and it leads to a space or pocket between the gum and tooth which causes food lodgement .Ideally it should be surgically excised. At home do warm saline rinses between meals Hydroxyl mouthwash  (1:10 dilution) twice daily for 14 days; Apply Hexigel over affected area thrice daily for 15 minutes  for a week and rinse with plain water

Firstly this is not a serious condition . It is Pericornitis also known as Opurculitis in which the gum tissue grows on top the wisdom tooth and becomes infected . Kindly do the following - 1. Apply Dologel CT on the infected area especially 30 minutes before any meal . Apply this gel 3-4 times a day for at least 5 days . 2. Do luke warm water with salt rinses regularly 3 times a day also for 5 days . This is bring down the pain . 3. Keep that area clean and always rinse your mouth after anything you eat as if food gets lodged and remains in that gum area it can further cause gum swelling .
Next Steps
Apply Dolo gel CT Do luke warm water rinses Keep the gum area clean
Health Tips
Rinse your mouth after every meal
