Infected mouth / wisdom teeth
I had a throat infection recently. My tonsil on the left side was covered in white film and was very painful to swallow. Antibiotics improved throat butI have a wisdom tooth coming in surprisingly out of nowhere. My teeth are full of pain, and my gums are swollen, sensitive , and covered in blisters . I also have a lump in the front of my throat?

It seems like you have severe tonsilitis (inflammation of the tonsils) which would require you to visit an ENT specialist. As per the wisdom tooth, they are most likely to erupt from 17years to 35 years of age. So it seems as though its erupting as of now which can be painful. You would need a course of antibiotics and analgesics to subside this episode. Salt water rinses (luke warm water along with 2 tsp of regular salt) may provide some relief. But under most circumstances it  tends to reoccur. So its best that you get it treated, which means either extraction of your wisdom tooth or removal of the exccessive gum tissues over the tooth. A visit to your dentist will definitely be helpful.
