Thank you for the query.
According to the history it suggests formation of dry socket leading to severe pain . The orrepaste given to you is used for ulceration or to reduce any inflammation . yes , you can use it . I would advice you to do salt water rinses and application of zinc oxide eugenol pack may help in healing faster and give relief from pain.
Hope this information helps you.
Take care.

This problem may be due to ulcer and traumatic interventions. Wait one more week. It will resolve. Don't give positive or negative pressure to the extracted area. Light saline gargle will help
