Swollen gums around left molar, tonsil pain on left side, pain on swallowing. Cure for symptoms?

My gums are swollen around my left molar. I have not had my wisdom teeth come in yet. The swelling started yesterday morning and when I woke up this morning it is way worse along with some tonsil pain on my left side as well. It hurts to swallow anything. It is so swollen that my top molars are rubbing against the inflammation around my bottom molar.

Welcome in H.C.M.
I read your query regarding swelling around your left molar and left tonsil.
Swollen gums and enlarged inflamed tonsil both hurt during swallowing. You should make your X-Ray OPG to know about un errupted molar, because more often wisdom tooth are misdirected and wrongly placed. If in X-Ray wisdom tooth is found misdirected than you should seek treatment by dentist.
As far as tonsilar selling is concern that will responds to antibiotics and anti inflammatory, but if you are not getting proper response than ent docter should be involve in treatment for getting desired results

With Regards.
