any infection during pregnancy should not be taken lightly, as spread of infection in blood can lead to premature uterine contractions and also can affect the health of the baby and mother,
so you visit your doctor,
and get examined,
take tablets to control infection,
and also analgesics and anti-inflammatory drugs to get relief from pain and swelling.
take care.
