I got 2 wisdom tooth extracted from same side on 12 june 2019. Upper one was easy.loswer one needed surgical extraction with stiches. On 23 june got stiches removed. I had little stiffness in that side jaw and radiating pain(bearable) which comes and go for few secs. Oral surgon mentioned nothing to worry as there is no infection. Now today on july 3, i took pic of side and noticed little white spot. I am afraid if this some kind of puss or what. I am maintaining oral hygine in best way. I still have off and on pain in ear, upper jawbone and little swelling n stiffness in same side throat. Can anyone help me plz. My inshurance is expired so i cant afford clinic visit incase its not a big issue. Thanks.

Hard angle to view. I believe it is either a canker sore (autoimmune response) or epithelial repair process. If it is pus/infection, it would be a raised bump with drainage (fistula) usually not after extraction.

Most likely nothing to worry about. If you notice the lesion getting worse, swelling, increased pain, and or not going away after 2 weeks, have it checked.
