red swollen jaw

i had a relly bad sore throat for 3-4 days with white blisters and swollen and then the infection moved to my gums around two bad teeth. My jaw swelled up and by the the end of the day my jaw had a huge red welt over the swollen area. Is that normal or should i be concerned

You should go see a dentist immediately to get the area evaluated.  A swelling of the jaw is a serious symptom and should be addressed immediately.

Are those small red spots still present?  Do you smoke at all?
