I would go see your dentist. Thrush can occur after antibiotic use. But that doesn't expalin the pain and swelling under the tongue. A dentist would know more than a physician on the mouth pain/swelling.

Well, there is a lot going on under the tongue, including salivary glands, lymph nodes, layers of muscle, vessels. So I'd still check in with a dentist. It probably is a little early for thrush to show up from the antibiotics. Sometimes people get thrush without antibiotic though. Good luck.
