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.

Wisdom tooth: The answer you are probably expecting is to see yor dentist or an oral surgeon and schedule to have wisdom teeth removed. Based on your description you should probably be on antibiotics as soon as possible. You will feel much better once the teeth are removed and this will no longer be something you have to worry about.

See an oral surgeon: I would suggest seeing an oral surgeon to assess your symptoms. If you were told that you have cystic degeneration around an impacted wisdom tooth then this should be treated by an os. Do not put this off even if it resolves because it will return and likely be worse the next time.

See Oral Surgeon: Complicated problem. For best results with wisdom teeth, make sure you are evaluated and treated by a board certified oral & maxillofacial surgeon.
