Thank you for your query.
The swelling that you mention could be due to multiple reasons. There's a possibility that a tooth may be infected and thereby causing periapical abscess
on the left side. Sometimes a dental involvement can be best clarified through clinical examination and xrays. I would suggest, you see a dentist
for the correct interpretation of your problem. If a tooth is causing this swelling, it can either be treated through a root canal treatment
or extraction, depending on the condition. If it is not so, then it could be due to a pathology of the mandible ( lower jaw bone ).
For the symptomatic relief you can take two tabs Ketorol dt
, stat, dispersed in water. This shall take care of the pain. Further antibiotics if required shall be prescribed by your dentist according to the prevailing problem.
I hope this advice is helpfull to you.
Get well soon :)
