Question Can an infected third molar cause mandibular nodes swelling?

I have a third molar that is very black and rotten but since I can't taste any pus, I assume the infection must be bubbling just below the surface (can they do this??). I also have an infected lymph node under my chin on the same side - directly under this molar and it feels like a pin-pr!ck type sensation travels between it and the node. What do you think?

Cheese Man,

From your description, it sounds like you have an infection brewing.
The time to act is now or asap before the infection travels to other parts of your body. You'll need to be on an antibiotic and then have the extraction done.

After you take the antibiotic, you'll feel better, but, make sure you still have the procedure done.
I've seen patients that have ended up in the hospital on an Antibiotic IV because of a bad dental infection that they left go for too long.

Don't wait! If needed: Go to the emergency room and get started on antibiotics.
