Specializes in Dentistry

Contact your dentist: You state that your wisdom teeth are coming out. Perhaps you should contact your dentist or oral surgeon to expedite your appointment or obtain an antibiotic in the interim. Hope this is helpful. If the problem persists after the wisdom teeth are removed, contact an ENT.

Lymph nodes?: Swollen lymph nodes usually occur as a result of exposure to bacteria or viruses. My recommendation is having the nodes evaluated by your doctor since there may be some treatment that can help it resolve faster.
