My third molar (wisdom teeth) seems to be coming out and the pain is severe. The skin at the end has swollen up like a pimple and the whole jaw & ear on the right are paining severely. Due to Ganesh Nimarjan, no dentists are available. I tried gargling with lukewarm salt water with turmeric but there's no difference. Can anyone suggest me any remedies to decrease the pain or tablets? Urgent suggestions needed plz.

Erupting third molars can b very trouble some after all who gets wisdom easily turmeric hardly has a role here luke warm water with about three quarter glass with one spoon full of common salt rinse five six times a day let the area bathe in that water for a while keeping in view prevailing fever you may take six fifty mg of paracetamol about three times a day it will give you relief.
Dear Concerned Take a pain killer which you have handy. Once your pain is a little better take a toothpick and gently clean the gum around the tooth. It would be difficult to reach and a little painful but do it anyway. Whatever is stuck around your tooth under the gum should be cleaned. Do warm saline rinses. Apply some toothpaste around the tooth for 10 minutes and brush. Before sleeping rinse with a mouthwash if you have any. Remember not to apply any balm or heat from outside. Also sleep on the other side of the face. This should bring you some relief till you can see a dentist soon enough.

Wisdom tooth or 3rd molar extraction
The wisdom teeth, also known as the third molars, are the final set of molars to erupt. Not everyone keeps these teeth, nor are they necessary for having a healthy, beautiful smile. In fact, they can cause harm if they do not come in properly. When these molars come in, usually between the ages of 16 and 20, there may not be enough room left for them to erupt. As a result, they can emerge at an angle, they may crowd the mouth and sometimes they don't fully emerge. This can lead to future oral health problems like infections and pain. So is should be extracted.
lybrate-user, eruption of 3rd molar is normal at your age. It is painful when there is not enough space or not erupting at proper angle. For time being you can have painkiller. Visit your dentist. You might have to get tooth extracted. Do not take any home remedy. That might worsen the condition.
Wisdom teeth can erupt anywhere between the age of 17 years and the mid-20s. It is usually accompanied by pain, sensitivity, and discomfort in chewing food. The pain also may radiate to head, neck and ear. For transient relief, you can go for pain killers and any antibacterial mouthwash, to keep the area clean, which may be difficult to clean otherwise with a toothbrush. Permanent treatment usually involves either removal of the gum tissue covering the wisdom tooth (if it is present in your case), or extraction of the tooth. Extraction will not cause you any problem with eating food, and it doesnât need to be replaced, unlike other teeth. I suggest that you consult me privately on Lybrate. In private/video consultation, looking at the exact condition, I will be in a better position to solve your query, and prescribe appropriate medication.
