Hello!
I had tooth #18 extracted on Wednesday (today is Saturday). It’s been quite painful since the extraction, but pain and swelling are worse as of last night (a 6-7 on pain scale). There is pain in my jaw, radiating towards the front of my mouth along the jaw bone and up in to my ear on the same side.
Does this look like possible infection and/or dry socket?

Good day

Yes this seems like a possible dry socket. Go back to your dentist for a follow up. He can clean out the area and prescribe additional medication as required.
