Sore throat, wound behind molar, pain

I recently got a sore throat and at the same time I got this wound or shallow hole that won t go away. It s been days now maybe a week. It s extremely painful and today I noticed it had a white substance in it but when I checked again it was gone. The wound is located on the upper left corner of my mouth just behind the molar. I ve had my wisdom teeth pulled out about a year ago. My molar is hitting it which is one reason it s not healing . I can t open my mouth wide to eat. What could it be?

From the details provided,its clear that the extraction socket has not healed well and results in formation of dry socket.
I would advice you to gargle frequently with warm saline.
Maintain oral hygiene well.
Rinse mouth after every meals to avoid food lodgement.
Take complete course of medicine prescribed.
