In brief: See a dentist ASAP

If you rely on antibiotics or other not a definitive treatment, the tooth infection always will come back.
Dentist/oral surgeon will treat a tooth infection by treating the cause and getting rid of the infection. Do not delay. See your oral surgeon ASAP. Good luck.

In brief: Tooth infection

It could be spreading.
Go see a dentist immediately for evaluation before you have a more serious problem. Get treatment on the offending tooth

In brief: Abscess

See an abscess? Can you see high blood pressure or diabetes? You've got a tooth infection and now you have symptoms that can indicate that it is spreading.
Call the dentist who prescribed the amoxicillin for you... if you are self medicating, then you still need to call a local dentist. Drugs cannot replace dental treatment.
