| | Wisdom tooth pain and cyst on jawline..need advice please!
About a month ago, my bottom right wisdom tooth, which is coming in, became painful and inflamed. I then began to notice a bump (lima bean size and moveable under the skin) on the bottom of my jaw right below my tooth. I went to an oral surgeon who took xrays and said that it was an infection caused by food getting in under the gum that is still remaining over the tooth. He prescribed pennicillion and recommended extraction, which I can't afford for at least 6 more months. The antibiotics seemed to work.
Last week, one month later, it started all over again and I noticed a lump on my neck (the same side)...this worried me so I went to my doctor, who agreed with the infection and said the lumb in my neck was my lymp nodes swelling, which happens when there is an infection. She gave me the same prescription. The pain has gone away, but the bump is still there with a little bit of swelling.
Any insight into any of this? Do I need a stronger prescription? Could there be any longterm effects the longer I wait?
