Dear Benlanfier,
Thank you for the query. The dull pain under the right side of jaw could be because of either third molar or because of lymph nodes. The detailed examination by dentist along with x-ray of the region shall give the clarity about it. You can try Ibuprofen+paracetamol tablets for the relief of pain once in 8 hrs, for three days. If you have swelling then better to consult the dentist at the earliest
Hope this answers your query. If you need anything to be clarified you are most well-come, otherwise kindly accept the answer.

With arm regards,
