    Tooth Abscess...Treatment working or not working?

    Yesterday I went to the dentist due to a very (very) painful tooth that would not quit throbbing. I was diagnosed with a tooth abscess.

Placebo effect is possible, too, of course. This morning, however, I woke up to find no lump directly above the tooth, but pressure and....

The side that is dropping more is also losing volume at a faster rate. I've also had pain for only a few days of the jaw muscle on the same side, but not sure if that has anything to do with my lips disappearing. What disease/disorder could....
