Tooth abscess: likely this is an abscessed tooth and seeking medical attention is your best option for antibiotics. another option is you have an abscess/infection and a swollen lymph node from that infection.

Antibiotics do not cure an infected (abscessed) tooth. They may limit the spread of infection temporarily, but infection will come roaring back once course of antibiotics has been completed. To cure the infection the infected tooth material must be surgically excised (root canal Rx or extraction). Please call your Dentist.
