Food is getting into the hole and causing infection. It's wise to see your dentist. Although it sounds gross (it's actually relieving) the dentist can reopen the gum and pack it with antibiotics and should feel much better. I had this happen when I had my 4 wisdom teeth taken out. It hurt like crazy.
