Impacted Teeth: It appears that those teeth are infected and need to be extracted. Waiting is not going to make things better. Please see an oral surgeon and schedule the extractions.

Impacted teeth: Bad smell and pain indicates infection of teeth, bone, and/or gums. Problem will not self-cure, nor is there an OTC that you can purchase in the dental isle at the supermarket that will cure your infection. You must see a specialist Oral Surgeon ASAPas the longer you wait, the more damage will be done, the more the infection will spread.
