Hello, thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pain at the bottom of the neck, right side of the cheek and there is a lump, as well as pain when opening your mouth that you experience can be a mumps. Mumps or mumps is a condition where there is an infection and swelling of the salivary glands which is generally caused by a paramyxovirus. The virus is generally transmitted through saliva splashes released by mumps sufferers when sneezing or coughing and then enters a person's respiratory tract and infects the salivary glands. Some of the symptoms that can arise are:
Swelling in the cheek area Pain when moving the mouth Fever Dry mouth
However, several other things can also cause your symptoms, such as:
Swollen lymph nodes Gum infection Crystallized saliva that blocks the outlet Tumors and so on
If it is mumps, it will generally heal on its own within 1-2 weeks, but do not delay to consult a doctor first so that an in-person examination can be carried out to ascertain the cause of the symptoms you are experiencing and treatment if necessary. The doctor will conduct a thorough interview and examination.
The things you can do are:
Maintain oral hygiene Consume soft foods Compress the painful area with warm water Eat small portions but often drink plenty of water Sufficiently meet daily nutritional needs Adequate rest Use pain medications such as paracetamol or ibuprofen if needed
