My right bottom wisdom tooth is trying to erupt the skin but is unable to on its own. I will be getting it surgically removed in a few months. But in the mean time I need to relieve the pain. The tooth gets infected every once in a while and now my right tonsil is swollen and in a lot of pain what can i do? And if I don t take the wisdom tooth out in enough time can it do any damage to it surroundings??

Till you plan surgical removal of your right bottom wisdom tooth you can get that area cleaned by your dentist if you are prolonging than you have to get cleaning done often. Analgesic as prescribed by your dentist should help you to releive pain but restrict frequent use. Warm water with salt gargle regularly and even 4-5times a day will help you to keep your wisdom tooth area and tonsil area releived of pain and swelling.
