I had a wisdom tooth extraction 9 days ago, since my dentist know me know that it was infected.. I have been on augmentin 1g BD since the last 10 days.
The surgical extraction was difficult, but for the first 3 days after the surgery I saw an improvement in swelling. At the 4th day, I started having a low grade fever, and at the 5th day Metronidazole 500g TDS was added to my treatment.
However, today, the fever has returned, and there is now a little fluctuant bump where the gum of the canine joins the floor of the mouth. (near the tongue side) .
The pain starts from the angle of the jaw to the left of the floor of the mouth and to the ears. the little bump is not painful. Any ideas?
