First and foremost visit a dentist and get evaluated with the issue you facing. If it is the last wisdom tooth it has to be extracted. If other tooth either it can be saved or extracted depending on the severity and underlying infection. Dont delay.

hello, you can do salt water rinses as a home remedy. but this will give you temporary relief. you need to visit a dentist and get an x-ray before taking any medications. the swelling could be due to the eruption of your wisdom tooth. so if pain persists, you can get it removed.

Hi, the reason for the swelling has to be diagnosed first, whether the swelling is because of carious tooth or last molar eruption or any periodontal problem. Depending on the cause the treatment has to be done. So its better to stop the medications and go for dental check up.

You should consult your dentist and get a x-ray of your affected side teeth so that you can get right treatment ( may be root canal or extraction, depends on your tooth condition) It may be due to grossly carious teeth or some infection there. So you can't get relief from antibiotics only.
