... off brand of orajel last night. I was not smart and used too much too soon. Also i didn't swallow it but it did get on my throat, I haven't used any today but the whole left side of my mouth is swollen and painful. Is this from orajel or wisdom teeth?

More than likely, it is your wisdom teeth causing the problem but it is also possible that you may be allergic to the orajel. You really need to consult a dentist as soon as you can. Wisdom teeth can be quite painful coming in and most of the time they need to be extracted especially if they are coming in crooked or impacted.

This is from your wisdom teeth!! You need to be seen by your dentist, and he or she will probably send you to an Oral Surgeon, everyone is different, but sometimes the Wisdom teeth grow in the wrong way, and have to be removed surgically, like I said everyone is different. Some ppl have a lot of pain and discomfort when they get their wisdom teeth for a few weeks but they come in and they are fine. See a dentist and if it get;s too bad or you don't have a dentist, go to the ER at least they can tell you if you need to see an oral surgeon. I wish you luck and hope you feel better soon!
