Dentist 's  Response
Post extraction of wisdom tooth usually shows the symptoms as you mentioned,if dry socket has developed at the site of extraction.
I would advice you to take rest for another 5-6 days.
Avoid anxiety and stress.
Gargle frequently with warm saline or betadine.
Maintain oral hygiene well.
Take complete course of antibiotics-analgesics prescribed.
Clean the socket with gauze soaked in povidine iodine solution.
If symptoms persists,please do visit a dentist.
Hope this helps.
