You have to be on antibiotics pain killers for five days after wisdom tooth extraction. It is advisable to stop smoking as long as the wound heals as smoking can hinder normal healing process. Do plenty of warm saline gargles. Blue yellow on outside is just a hematoma that will resolve on its own. Do not rub that area
