You need to visit your dental surgeon soon for evaluation of your problem as it may be post operative complication. There are many reasons of swelling and pain after extraction. They may be related to surgey or post op compliance.
You can apply ice pack on the swelling for 3-4 minutes not more than twice a day. This will decrease swelling. Rinse your mouth with warm saline (salt) water 3-4 times daily after meals. Take the prescribed medicine on time. If pain persists then you should visit the dentist again.
