In brief: See dentist

Antibiotics along with establishing drainage and treating the cause of the swelling is imperative.

In brief: Phone call

If you are infected from a rotten tooth or from periodontitis, you need to call a dentist to be seen.
There is nothing, and i repeat nothing, that you can do yourself to treat that problem. Please make the call before the pain becomes unbearable. Go to the er if it becomes an emergency.
