Causes And Treatment Of Swollen Cheeks Accompanied By Pain In The Ears And Throat?
Good afternoon, sorry I want to ask, I have experienced swelling on the right cheek on the inside of the gums but it’s not swollen gums and this causes my throat to ache and my ear hurts. What disease is this? Already treated but there has been no change, thank you
hello, thanks for the question to HealthReplies.com
Symptoms of swollen cheeks can be caused by several possibilities, including:
parotid gland infections by viruses or other bacteria
obstruction of the parotid gland (for example by stones)
parotid gland cyst
tumor of the parotid gland
enlarged lymph nodes due to various causes (for example there is an infection in the throat, tonsils, teeth, or ears)
If indeed you have checked yourself to the doctor, you should ask more clearly the cause of the swelling so that we can provide an overview of the course of the disease (for example in parotitis due to infection with the virus mumps, often no treatment is needed because it can heal itself within 3-7 days ). If indeed you do not know clearly your disease or you really have not seen a doctor directly, you should do a doctor's examination to find the exact cause of the swelling in your cheek and for further treatment.
For now, you can try to compress the swollen part with a warm compress, if you feel your body has a fever or the swelling is painful, you can take drugs such as paracetamol.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
