What can be wrong with my chin...

OK, here goes...
My chin who is 5 month old has fungus under his mouth.
We treated it with FungiStop in the baths he took, and also with Canesten powder.
Any chn that had problems was treated this way and the results were great.
A day after the canesten treatment I saw that my chins nose was kind of dirty.
Couldn't find out from what at the time.
Later I saw that he had a lot of water mixed with ground down pellets in his mouth (it looked like mudd).
His whole face was dirty, and his hands also because he tried to clean himself.
He looks as though it's hard for him to chew.
His mouth looks reluctant to open and kind of inflamed and swollen.
His front teeth are good, and orange, but I can't see what's up with the back ones.
He had no problems until today, and this state came suddenly.
What could be the most probable cause of this?
Allergic reaction to the powder? Bad teeth? Bacterial or fungal infection of the mouth?
How should I treat him?
I cen't go to a vet because it's Saturday evening.
Any help would be very appretiated.

Get him to the vet A.S.A.P. For now keep him clean and feed him mashed food

It sounds like hes back teeth are all messed up.
You need to go to the vet. It sounds like he can't eat or drink right.

Rather a vet yesterday than today.

When my girl had maloclussion, we thought she also had fungus on her chin but what happens is chins will drool on their chins and then lose all the fur there so it looks like fungus. It is most likely teeth. please take him to the vet

We wnt to the wet.
His teeth are all OK, so he got some antibiotics because the diagnose was inflammation.
After 3 shots of AB he is much better and not drooling any more.
Thanks for all the advice.
