    I don't have an answer for you but I wonder why you haven't talked to your dentist about this. It might be an infection from the tooth which if that is what's causing it, he can prescribe you an antibiotic to treat the infection. Most dentists will treat their patients with an antibiotic BEFORE doing the root canal if they suspect there is an existing infection. The injection may have hit a pocket of infection and shot all that bacteria all through your jaw.

    Well I've never had that happen to me and I've never heard of it happening to anyone else.
