See oral surgeon: The sac that surrounds your impacted wisdom tooth has become infected. In addition to infection these areas sometimes can undergo malignant changes. I recommend you have the tooth out asap.

See a dentist ASAP: If swollen, could be serious infection. If you aren't on antibiotics you may need to be. Don't wait any longer!
