Sores on inside cheeks after wisdom teeth extraction?

Q: I had four very impacted wisdom teeth removed four days ago. I have been in a lot of pain, taking Vicodin every 4 hours and Naproxen in between Vicodin doses. My cheeks swelled so big that it’s affecting my eye sight. I have not been able to open my mouth hardly at all. Every time I try it feels like something in my cheek is tearing (stitches maybe?) I was finally able to fit a child’s size tooth brush in my mouth today and noticed white sores. Is my cheek infected? How can that be?

A: I would go back to the oral surgeon and have them check your mouth for any infection. It is very important to follow up.
