Suggest treatment for tooth ache

My tooth started to hurt on day and it spread through out the left side of my face. Meaning behind and around the left side of my neck (just the side, not the back), my ear, my shoulder, and my tooth still hurts...but not as bad as before. My ear feels like its burning as well, around my ear and temple is throbbing. My nose and left eye are fine. What is wrong with me? I can send a picture of where it hurts exactly on my face if needed.

Hello,

Thanks for consulting HCM

Read your query, as you have tooth ache this pain in tooth can be due to deep carious tooth , decayed tooth , results in formation of Abscess (pus ) in tooth or due to pain in wisdom tooth may be impacted and formation of Pericoronal Abscess in tooth or due to gingival , periodontal ligament induced secondary to Periodontal Abscess.
I will suggest you to consult Oral surgeon for examination and rule out the cauae of pain , in meanwhile you can take analgesic like Ketrol dt or Zerodol sp amd do warm saline rinses, and consult dentist for ita treatment.

Hope this will help you.

Thanks for using Health Care Magic.

Read your query.

Is any of your tooth decayed or carious on the side mentioned ?Is there any swelling in that area?

Pain in the tooth if decayed can radiate to the jaw ,ear and associated structures.For the pain ibuprofen can be taken (if not allergic to any medicines).
Consult your local dentist and get it checked followed by radiograph .Treatment with filling, root canal treatment can be done based in how the tooth is.

If the pain is not in the tooth but on the left side , please evaluate yourself with the physician.

Do salt water gargling.Avoid application of hot bag in that area externally.

Hope this was useful.
Thanks and regards.
