hello,
if your dry socket heals progressively there is no need to worry about the lump in the jaw line it is the enlarged lympnode reacting to the infection. if infection resolves it too will resolve. but if the pain progresses and foul breath is present you should visit the dentist again. the result of the treatment not only depends on the dentist, it is also very important you follow dentist's health care advices sincerely. take care

Hi, the socket has not healed completely. There is still some infection. The blisters are a result of that. The blisters are erupting because of pus accumulation. . Infection is the cause pain also. Please visit your dentist. You may need antibiotics along with analgesics to control pain and infection. Betadine gargles along with oral antibiotics will help a lot. Take care!
