Thanks for writing to us.

The symptoms are usually associated with impacted wisdom tooth which is inflammed.

I would advice you to take complete course of antibiotics-analgesics.

Gargle frequently with lukewarm saline.

Maintain oral hygiene well.

Avoid stress and take adequate rest.

Avoid cold fluids/foods.

Hope this helps.
