Fever Is Accompanied By Coughing Colds And Back Pain In The Ear?
Good morning, since Saturday, I have a fever, dizziness and cough and runny nose with the back of the lower left ear hurting. At first my family thought it was mumps, but the sick part was not big swelling, to this day it is only a little swollen. And can hurt when swallowing / chewing. At this time the fever has gone down, there is still a little warm. My partner blg it is not mumps, only excessive heat in. Can overheating affect the salivary glands? thank you
Hello, Thank you for the question.
Mumps or mumps is a viral infection of the parotid gland (the gland that functions to produce saliva) which causes swelling and the side of the face will look enlarged. In addition to enlargement of the parotid gland, sufferers will also experience pain in the cheeks when chewing or swallowing, fever, joint pain, fatigue, headaches, and decreased appetite.
The pain you feel in the lower ear may be caused by swollen lymph nodes caused by infections that enter the body. Swollen lymph nodes occur in response to the immune system against infection. These lymph nodes will return to normal when the infection has healed. Fever that is accompanied by cough and cold can be caused by flu, sinusitis, bronchitis, and others. High body temperature does not affect the salivary glands.
Please check with your doctor if this complaint does not improve. In addition to asking your complaint, your doctor also needs to examine you to determine the cause and subsequent treatment.
You can do the following suggestions:
get enough rest
consume water at least 2 liters per day
consume nutritious food
take paracetamol if you have a fever
always cover mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing to prevent transmission
Hopefully this information is useful.
