How To Deal With Pain In The Lower Jaw?
Hello, my name is retno kiki safitri. Now I feel pain in the lower part of the front jaw of the inner ear. Maybe this is a disease of the salivary glands. This is the first time I experienced it. So how is it to cure or prevent this disease?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pain under the front jaw of the ear can indeed indicate problems with the salivary glands, such as parotititis (mumps), sialadenitis (inflammation of the salivary glands), salivary gland stones, benign or malignant tumors, and so on. Not only pain, this salivary gland problem often also triggers swelling, excessive salivation, bad breath, coughing, swallowing pain, phlegm, fever, decreased appetite, and many other complaints.
Aside from problems with the salivary glands, pain under the jaw as you feel may also indicate other causes, for example lymphadenitis (inflammation of lymph nodes), tonsillopharyngitis (inflammation of the tonsils and throat), disorders of the jaw joints, otitis media (inflammation of the middle ear) , post-injury, psychosomatic disorders, toothache, cellulitis (inflammation of soft tissue), skin infections around the jaw, and so on.
If this pain is very disturbing, you can try some suggestions first:
Take paracetamol as a pain reliever Get plenty of rest Drink more water at least 10 glasses per day Do not over-eat foods that stimulate saliva production, such as coconut milk, fried foods, spicy foods, sticky foods, sweet foods. Eat more fruits and vegetables Diligent brushing teeth, continued by gargling using salt solution Don't smoke Don't carelessly take other medications without doctor's advice If the steps above still don't alleviate your complaints within 1-3 days, we recommend that you don't let them. Check with yourself directly to the doctor or ENT specialist doctor to be given the best treatment.
Hope this helps ...
