Thanks for putting up your question on Just Answer.
You need to get to a dentist ASAP so that an X ray can be made of the tooth. Your description suggests that it is decayed and infected, and it needs to be removed.
Till you can see a dentist, please alternate between Advil and Tylenol every 6 hours.

Hi , looks like you have a wisdom tooth with gum inflamation , rinse mouth with a Perio-Aid or Corsodyl , and see a dentist ASAP .
While it's not possible to diagnose your issue with certainty without xrays and a clinical exam, your symptoms and signs are consistent with probable infection. This can be due to "pulp exposure" (decay that has progressed into the tooth pulp causing infection and abscess) or "pericoronitis" (infection resulting when food debris becomes lodged between the tooth ang gum. Perio-Aid or a dilution of basic peroxide rinse can be helpful. Even salted tap water rinsing oten helps. But you are probably in need of antibiotics, and it would be wise to see a dentists asap to fully address the problem.
Hope this helps,
