Thanks for the query it seems you have postoperative infection and it's spreading. It will be good if you visit your dentist your dentist will evaluate you clinically and start with medications such as antibiotics, pain killers.
It is good that you have mentioned your problem in detail here, still it is not very much favorable to conclude a concrete diagnosis. Why because there are many things/ lesions/ problems with similar features mentioned by you. So best is to visit a dentist nearby. Proper history, examinations can reveal your problem and save much time. Meanwhile take otc painkillers which suits you.
