Looks like a second molar which is infected. It may need  a root canal and crown or if the tooth is very badly destroyed then extraction and replacing.
This is what I can gauge from the pictures you have sent and symptoms explained.
Please visit a dentist asap to prevent loss of that tooth if it's still salvageable.
Take care.

please first tell your mother not to take medication on counter. its dangerous. will u take self medication for any other problem in the body, like for eye, ear, nose etc.. tooth is part of the body, and the toothache can be result of just caries or apical periodontitis, or apical abcess or anything else.. you must visit dentist first. let the dentist carryout the diagnostic procedures to find out the cause and initiate treatment.
Next Steps
visit near by dentist, undergo diagnostic steps including x ray

the last tooth is on the upper side or lower?
in any case she will have to visit a dentist & do proper consultation to know what exactly is wrong with the tooth.  the dentist might even take an xray to give  you the right diagnosis & treatment plan.
Hope this helps  and please don't antibiotics & painkillers like this.  it will cause more harm than benefits in the future.
