First of all, with all the symptoms you have stated, i guess you have got infection and caries since months, but u noticed it 6 days back.
Analgesics (medication which subside pain) is not treatment, its just temporary relief to buy some time for you to get complete treatment. so, its not going to solve your problem.
Your cheeks are swelling thats is due to Infection, aerobic as well as anaerobic, and the fever
is due to the infection. And just pain killers arent going to solve your problem.
You need to consult your dentist
and he or she will take a Radiograph or X-ray, and will advice you treatment, mostly extraction or Root canal treatment
, but in few cases, incision and drainage
is also needed if the infection is very much spread. But from your case presentation, i guess your swelling will be subsided with the help of Antibiotics which cover both aerobic as well as anaerobic infection, (dont try to self medicate yourself, consult your dentist) and pain killers, they will act efficiently when you are taking antibiotics alongwith it.
