Long and short of it. Short term you can take antibiotics to control the spread of infection and reduce swelling, but it would only work while you are on the medication (and a few days after). And taking meds for weeks and weeks is not good for you (think super bugs...). Long term, permanent fix would be to have a root canal treatment done, or the tooth taken out.
Remove the source. If your tooth is abscessed/infected, you can either remove the nerve (root canal) or remove the tooth (extraction). There are NO other good solutions. It's like there is a splinter in your finger and you want it better--ice, antibiotics, pain-meds and any number of other remedies pale in comparison to simply removing the splinter.
See your dentist. It sounds like you could have a possible infection. Only a physical examination by a dentist can tell you this for sure. See a dentist immediately. Don't wait.
Treat the abcess. Usually antibiotics are the first line of treatment followed by definitive therapy such as extraction or root canal. Sometimes warm salt water rinses will sooth the area but that is only temporary. Untreated abcesses can cause more problems that you don't need.
