Hello and welcome ,
Usually during eruption of wisdom tooth,ear,throat infection are associated.
I would suggest you to visit a dentist and get a thorough clinical examination done.
If wisdom teeth are still impacted,x-ray will help to find out the position of tooth.
Depending on space available for tooth eruption,it has to be either extracted or flap overlying tooth has to be removed to enhance tooth eruption.
Take warm saline gargle frequently.
Also consult an ENT specialist regarding your concern.
Take care.
