You'll probably be better to see a dentist. It might be better to have your wisdom teeth removed. Either way your dentist can tell you if they are coming in normally and it may be temporary discomfort or one or more of them may need to come out. Corsodyl mouthwash is good for any mouth infection.

I had this and went to my dentist who cleaned it out a bit - probably better to get them to diagnose the problem than try fixing it yourself. You poor thing -its rotten I know.

I'm your twin here, been suffering with it the last few days, hasn't happened in approx 4 yrs so I'm holding tough it won't get any worse or else they'll have to be taken out. Last time I had infection I was on antibiotics and anti inflammatory tablets, best go and see the dentist. I better practice what I preach now

On the brightside ladies, when you get them out your cheekbones look more pronuounced!
