    So I got all four of my wisdom teeth out almost 3 weeks ago and I am still experiencing some pain on one side. Ibuprofen helps get rid of the pain but I am worried that this is not normal. I am also worried because there is a red growth that formed near the extraction site and looks like there is another one beginning to form on the other side.. I have attached photos of each. What does this mean?

    Could be a bony sequestrum or even osteomyelitis. Warrants a look and X-ray to diagnose but definitely get this checked out.
