Thanks for asking the query,

Your clinical symptoms and history suggest that you probably are having periodontal abscess formation arising from the infected tooth.

Blisters in the mouth are due to some trauma due to biting , as a result of fever , cold some type of blisters are caused by herpes simplex, allergies due to some foods, vitamin deficiencies .

Get clinical evaluation of the tooth , take an x-ray of the concerned tooth.
Take multivitamin suplements .
If it is due to abscess get it drained .

Avoid eating hot , spicy , aeroted , carbonated foodstuffs.
Use saline water gargles 3-4 times a day , use antiseptic mouthwash gargles twice daily keep the area clean . Take complete balanced diet.

Hope this helps out.

hello there ,

According to your history i can suspect your infected tooth has gone worse and you have developed a periodontal abscess due to spread of infection to the underlying tissues.

The swelling you can notice is nothing but the abscess cavity and it drains the pus in the oral cavity.

This type of periodontal abscess needs to be drained and compressed in position and then followed by a course of antibiotic and analgesic will subside the symptoms of pain and swelling.

once the abscess is drained the infected tooth can be treated by root canal procedure to devitalise it permanently and save the tooth or of the prognosis is poor the tooth can be extracted.

get an x ray done the affected area and approach a dentist for the treatment.

meantime you can start with antibiotic augmentin 625mg with analgesics two times daily, this helps in subsiding the swelling and pain.

i hope this helps,

take care.
