Swallowing liquid coming out after a tooth extraction

Q: If one had a wisdom tooth extracted and has yellow discharge coming out from the extraction hole, which is not blood or pus, though one does not know exactly what it is, can one swallow it during prayer? What if in the case where the discharge is food debris that are being pushed out of the hole?

A: Yes.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
