In brief: Wisdom tooth

It sounds like an infection, but it is impossible to know for sure without a clinical and visual exam, x-rays, and a dental history.
Make an appointment with your dentist for an exam and diagnosis.

In brief: See your dentist

When wisdom teeth cause problems, they need to come out.
If you are experiencing pain, swollen gums, lymph nodes and it does not go away or if you find it difficult to open your mouth, you should see a dentist for evaluation, x-ray and wisdom teeth removal.

In brief: Wisdom tooth issue

What you describe could be an infection or abscess.
What's really important is for you to see a dentist as soon as possible to determine both the cause of the pain and whether or not the tooth and gum problems can be treated or whether it's best to take out that wisdom tooth if the long term prognosis is poor or hopeless.
