Hello and welcome to hcm forum,
Thanks for posting your query.
Since you had undergone a complicated traumatic extraction procedure;Ear and throat infection,fever,headache are common symptoms associated with pre- and post extraction of wisdom tooth.
I would suggest you to avoid anxiety and stressful jobs.
Take rest for a minimum of 5-6 days.
Maintain oral hygiene well.
Gargle frequently using warm saline and betadine rinse.
The socket has to be keep clean and dressing using povidine iodine solution can be done.
Take complete course of antibiotics-analgesics too.
Take care.
