Pain In The Cheek Wall In The Back Of The Right Mouth.?
Hello Doctor, I want to ask a question. 2 days ago the back of the inside cheek of my right mouth hurt. Pain when swallowing and pain when talking. And the pain is in contact with the throat and ears. At first I thought maybe my teeth would grow, but if teeth grow, usually the swelling and pain is gum. But what I experienced wasn’t swelling and pain in the gums. The pain in the inner cheek and the swollen part was somewhat like a small lumpy flesh. About 3 months ago I also experienced it, but after a few days lost. And now experiencing that again. I wonder why my cheeks?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pain and swelling in the inside of the oral cavity, including the area around the cheeks, throat, and also the ears most likely indicate inflammation. Triggers for this inflammation can be many, including due to irritation (for example due to consumption of hard, spicy, or excessive oily foods, due to being bitten, due to being pricked by food spines), allergies (for example due to contact with mouthwash, toothpaste, or certain foods), infections ( for example due to mumps, sialadenitis, lymphadenitis, cellulitis, herpes simplex, herpes zoster, candidiasis), or many other reasons. Impaired immunity, malnutrition, to malignancy can also aggravate this condition.
In fact, not all of the above conditions are dangerous. However, if not handled properly, obviously this condition can be very annoying, especially when you talk or chew food. As a result, your nutritional intake can be reduced, and the disease will recover even longer.
Therefore, we recommend that you check your complaints directly to the nearest ENT doctor or doctor. With direct inspection of the condition of your mouth and throat, often the doctor is able to do the right treatment. If deemed necessary, you may be encouraged to undergo other investigations, for example laboratories, biopsies, ultrasound, and so on.
For now, here are the suggestions that you should make:
Drink plenty of warm water
Eat foods that are easier to digest, don't be too spicy, oily, hard, take off, and contain artificial sweeteners
Expand to eat fruits that are rich in vitamin C, such as guava, orange, strawberry, longan
Do not smoke
Do not always scream and excessive physical activity
Use a mask when in a dirty and polluted environment
Take paracetamol if the pain you feel is quite great
Be diligent at brushing your teeth, then proceed with gargling using a salt solution
Do not carelessly take other medicines except on doctor's prescription
Hope this helps ...
