hello and welcome to hcm forum,
As you wrote , pain after a month of getting your wisdom molar extracted is something which needs to be checked thoroughly.
without checking clinically, i cannot suggest you any treatment but i would like to ask you to do warm saline rinses or betadine rinses, in order to relief some pain.
your dentist might prescribe you antibiotics and anti-inflammatory only after ruling out the cause.
so kindly visit your dentist soon.

i wish you good health.

since u had pain a month after wisdom teeth extracted and as u told its mild till yesterday and now its become severe means there should be further infection in that area. some times when the wisdom teeth in typical position mostly horizontal position means if the wisdom teeth almost touching the root portion of the adjacent teeth there will be possibility of adjacent tooth root might have exposed R the chances of that portion will get infected. so please go back to your dentist get diagnosed by taking an x ray and get needful done . antibiotics and pain killers will help u to avoid further infection .
take care
