Self medication is injurious to health. If wisdom tooth is partially erupting, x ray needs to be taken to see if space is there for it to come or if it is coming out in the right direction. Best is to show to a good reputed dentist & get all this evaluation done at earliest. Running away from real issue is not going to help. Good luck to you. Regards
