The symptom you  are explaining is indicative  of Pericoronitis which is inflammation  of gum  around  the tooth.It is common during  third molar eruption. Don't  worry. Visit your  nearest  dentist  for a look.

No need to worry.. sometime during eruption of wisdom tooth extra soft tissue coverage may be there.. sometimes it happen due to biting or sometime it happen due to minor infection.. consult an oral surgeon
