Lumps On The Side Of The Nose After A Toothache?
Hi. Good morning. I want to ask . Initially my mother suffered from upper left toothache. The left cheek is swollen next to the eye. Now the swelling has healed. But there is still a lump on the left nose below the right eye. Increasingly red and growing day by day. What was the cause of the lump? Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pain in the upper teeth most often results from cavities. It could also occur due to gingivitis (inflammation of the gums), tooth abscess (pus-filled pocket inside the tooth), pulpitis (inflammation of the tooth root), sensitive teeth, impact, sinusitis (inflammation of the sinus cavity), disorders of the jaw joint (temporomandibular junction). , etc. Disorders of the gums can make the gums and surrounding tissue become inflamed until they swell. This swelling can enlarge to appear in the cheek area as you experienced before.
The appearance of a lump in the nose under the eye that gets bigger and bigger can arise for many reasons. This condition is not always related to the toothache that you experienced before. Here are some of the possibilities that can cause this lump:
Skin infections, eg folliculitis, abscesses, cellulitis - these infections can come from spreading the infection in your teeth and mouth Skin tumors, eg sebaceous cysts, lipomas, sarcomas, melanomas Keloid insect bites, hypertrophic scars (post-inflammatory scar tissue overgrowth) Injuries (for example those that cause edema or hematoma), etc. It is really difficult to determine the exact trigger of your mother's complaints without doing a direct physical examination. Therefore, before the complaint gets worse, you should first check with your mother to the doctor. The treatment that the doctor will give will vary, including administering medication, filling or extracting teeth (if there are cavities), surgery, and so on. .
In the meantime, your mother can first do the following initial treatment:
Compress the swollen area with warm water, while pressing a little (do not overdo it) Elevate the head position while sleeping so that the swelling is reduced If you feel pain in the swollen area, take paracetamol first. mouth better Hope it helps ya ..
