    Go see a dentist for some antibiotics. The only other option (and this is not advisable unless you know what you're doing) is to perforate the abscess with a hypodermic needle to allow it to drain. It's strictly an emergency measure and you still need antibiotics, but it can help reduce the pain and swelling temporarily.

    See a dentist asap before you get a serious jaw infection and end up in hospital having surgery to remove part of your jaw.
