Thank you for posting your query.

The short duration of your symptoms suggest that your pain could be due to an infection. The likely source could be teeth or gums. A dental examination would be helpful.

In addition, herpes virus infection can begin like this. If you notice any blisters on the face, then, it could be suggestive of infection with herpes virus. In that case, you should consult dermatologist.

As of now, you can take ibuprofen or diclofenac tablets for pain relief.

I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
