I went to my dentist on sept 11th to check my left back molar #18. On the back, it has had a gum boil because I did not brush my teeth with toothpaste for 2 days.
My lymph nodes on neck/left ear have also been swollen, so I bought amoxicillin from a shop so that it does not get worse swelling.
She took an x-ray, pic came out good, there was no infection so it does not need a root canal.
She gave me a cotton ball with disinfectant, asked me to bite and wait until it would get better or she said she should cut it.
It's now already sept 24th. Since it's been a long time, I desperately want to pop it myself, and then bite cotton balls.

Should I do that?
Thank you very much.

Do you have an impacted or unerupted wisdom tooth behind it?
