Wisdom tooth infection

Recently I had my wisdom tooth pulled out on the lower side of my jaw. Shortly after I developed an infection that I had to have my dentist scrape out. It has now been 3 weeks after and I still have swelling. Although the swelling has gone down it has now seemed to stay in the current state it is in. I had to check up with the dentist and he prescribed me more penicillin and said to see him back in 6 weeks. I'm wondering if this is normal that the swelling hasn't gone down completely yet. The pain is not as severe as before I had the infection but I do notice a tender feeling on the back of the teeth when chewing food. Any help will be greatly appreciated thank you
