Until take tab augmentin 625mg 2x , tab ebility 3x , vitamin supplement, gargle with warm saline water 3 to 4 times a day , apply kenocart ointment topically on ulcers, use antiseptic mouthwash , maintain oral hygiene.

Thank you for the query.
Pain behind the ear and along the neck line may be because of the impacted wisdom teeth ,usually in such cases ulcer develop due the repeated trauma caused by occlusal contact . Best treatment for this condition is to get your wisdom teeth removed which in future will not subject to trauma leading to pain or ulcer . Bad breath is because of the impacted food material and the another possiblity may be formation of abscess which again is the reason for radiating pain and bad breathe .. For migarine see your neurophysician .

Hello there, i feel problem is with your wisdom tooth. Deep caries or infected wisdom tooth often radiate pain to the side of the jaw, adjoining ear and the side of head.Abscess draining from the infected tooth or accumulation of food debris in the gum pocket gives fowl mouth odour, you may have lymph node enlargement in the neck area which is mainly due to infected tooth. i suggest you to visit a dentist soon, get a X ray examination of the tooth and if it is impacted and infected get it removed surgically. A course of antibiotic and analgesics will definitely solve your problem.,take care.

Thanks for asking the query,

According to your clinical history i suppose that you have developed an infection with your wisdom tooth, the surrounding area is difficult to clean and leads to infection and inflammation known as Pericoronitis, if infection is not treated in time can lead to abscess formation which gives a foul odour.
I would suggest you to visit the Dentist and get the checkup done, take an OPG radiograph and plan for the extraction of the tooth.
Take complete course of antibiotics and analgesics.
Take lukewarm saline gargles and antiseptic mouthwash rinses.
Maintain a good oral hygiene.

Hope this helps out.
