The symptoms are usually associated with impacted wisdom tooth which is inflamed.
Since you are at the age of 30,and the tooth is decayed,mostly tooth has to be extracted.
Take complete course of antibiotics and analgesics.
Rinse your mouth after every meals.
Gargle using lukewarm saline or betadine.
Please do visit a dentist as soon as possible.
Maintain oral hygiene well.
Avoid anxiety and stress.
Hope this helps.
