Based on the description of your symptoms, most likely you have infection around your erupting wisdom tooth..... please get a proper clinical examination by a dentist and an x-ray called as OPG..... most likely you will be requiring removal of that offending tooth ..... other treatment options if possible can be suggested only after examination and X-rays..... Regards.....

It could be because of your erupting wisdom tooth, better to visit a dentist, have x ray done and under antibiotic coverage, the problem could be solved.

Dear patient, these signs and symptoms are quiet commonly seen when there is an eruption of a wisdom tooth, you will need to visit a dentist, undergo a radiographic examination & start antibiotic coverage prescribed by your dentist, who will then decide whether this tooth needs to be extracted or any other alternative treatment plan. Regards
