Pain/swelling: You didn't post your age, which would have been helpful. Sounds like you may be having a wisdom tooth problem. You must see your General Dentist to determine the cause of your symptoms. He/she will then treat your problem or refer you to the appropriate specialist. Symptoms indicate an infection. There is no effective OTC. Please seek professional care immediately.
