Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Swelling and pain under the ear near the jaw accompanied by fever and difficulty eating can indeed stem from problems with the teeth and mouth. Some of the possibilities are:
Wisdom tooth eruption. Gingival abscess (pus-filled pocket in the gums) Gingivitis (inflammation of the gums) Cavities, etc. Can also occur due to other causes, for example parotitis (inflammation of the parotid glands), sialadenitis (inflammation of the salivary glands), lymphadenitis ( inflammation of the lymph nodes), jaw joint problems (for example inflammation or dislocation), skin infections (for example acne or folliculitis), mastoiditis (mastoid bone infection), otitis externa (inflammation of the outer ear), and so on.
Inflammation in the airways, which is marked by a cough that you have previously had, can spread to other organs around the mouth, ears, or jaw, causing your current complaint. However, it could also be that the complaints you are experiencing now occur due to different causes of your cough, so the handling will be different.
Therefore, try to see your doctor first so that it is clear what kind of treatment you need to do to deal with your complaint. If it is true that the problem lies in the area of the teeth and mouth, the doctor may also recommend that you see a dentist.
In the meantime, you can first take paracetamol while compressing the painful area using a warm compress. Limit consumption of foods that are too hard and lead to excess saliva production, for example spicy and fried foods. Drink more, brush your teeth diligently, and get plenty of rest. Do not forget, keep taking medication to treat your cough according to the doctor's instructions.
Hope this helps ..
