Its day 5, and its still getting worse. This morning my ear is also paining. Dentist did some cleaning of the tooth, told that it will be fine by Monday. But there is no sign of improvement.

You need to seek a oral and maxillofacial surgeon who will do a forced opening of jaw and remove the wisdom teeth.
The thing will take another 3-4 days to recover after the procedure .
It's in a urgent situation now and you should seek the surgeon ASAP
Get the necessary radiographs done after a consult with the dentist , ideal way out is an extraction of wisdom tooth , but a judgement can be made only after the X-ray .
