Causes Red Neck Swelling And Pain?
Hello, I am 19 years old, my right neck is swollen, and in the middle of my neck, it is red and itchy. Especially if I take a shower late in the evening, it will definitely be sick. According to the doctor, how about my situation? Thank you in advance
Hello Ullanbumu, thank you for asking.
Assessment of the possibility of a diagnosis of your condition, must be done through a direct physical examination by a doctor. We don't know your condition, so we can only give you possibilities. How long have you experienced this? When you say you've been seeing a doctor, how long have you been taking medication? It is possible that your condition is indeed caused by an infection, mainly due to swelling, redness, and pain. The infection may affect the skin, lymph nodes, or other structures around it. Infection may be caused by bacteria or viruses.
Sometimes treatment for infection can take several days or weeks. That is, treatment will not necessarily eliminate the symptoms, but gradually. If after a few weeks the complaint still does not change or actually worsen, consult your doctor again. If necessary, the doctor may have to check a blood sample or do a biopsy to find the cause.
In the meantime, you can take over the counter pain relievers and are labeled green. If there is an allergic reaction, stop taking the drug immediately. Do not take antibiotics or anti-virus without doctor's advice. Avoid massaging the area of pain, because it might worsen the spread of infection. Make sure your nutritional intake is optimal, so that the body's immunity goes well.
Hopefully this brief advice can help you a little. Regards.
