Though the likeliest cause may be tooth related there could be other reasons. Please DO NOT take any medication randomly prescribed unless you have had the chance to visit a doctor. Only after diagnosis yo u should be taking any medication or you may succeed in only masking the problem,not treating it.

First of all according to the symptoms which u have mentioned it seems that the condition is associated with wisdom tooth so in this case either u can visit nearby dentist ASAP or you can give your husband following medicament I.e. 1) tab. Amoxyclav 625 1 B.d 2) tab. Enzoflam. 1 B.d. 3) tab . beplex forte 1 o.d. All three medicines to be taken for three days that too after meals with water .

Hello madam good evening From the description to you have given most probably the issue looks like to be an issue with the wisdom tooth. Can you clarify or shed some more light on your concern Like Does the pain even radiates to the head of the same left side.? And the pain which is present now has it been there even before ? If these two questions ans are affirmative then most probably the pain is associated with wisdom tooth... Hope so your query is resolved... If any more doubts do post it again here or in private chat

Hi..it could be a viral infection associated with ear or it could be because of an infected wisdom tooth. Both ENT and dental check required for scanning. Regards
