Pain Under The Ear And Sore Eyes?
Hello. I want a consul, there is a lump under my ear and my eyeballs are slightly red like there is blood. why is that? and what is the medicine? thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Lumps under the ear can appear since childhood, or it can only appear after a person is an adult. The causes of this lump can be different, so it is necessary to clarify first how exactly the characteristics of the lump that you are experiencing?
Here are some conditions that can cause lumps under the ear:
Skin tags (excessive skin growth triggered by genetic factors and repeated friction)
Lymphadenopathy (swollen lymph nodes, often associated with infections, cancer, immune system disorders)
Skin infections, for example due to warts, folliculitis, acne
Skin tumors, for example lipoma, melanoma
Keloids, hypertrophic scars, and so on
Meanwhile, there are many possible causes for redness in the eyes. These patches can appear diffusely in all parts of the eye, or they can be limited to certain parts of the eye. It could also be that these red spots cause other complaints, such as itching, burning, blurry vision, abnormal secretions from the eyes, and so on. These patches may be caused by conjunctivitis (inflammation of the conjunctiva), uveitis (inflammation of the uveal tract), pinguecula (eye acne due to irritation due to exposure to UV rays and excessive dry air), hyphema (bleeding in the eye), and so on.
We are not authorized to determine the appropriate treatment for your complaint without conducting a physical examination directly to confirm a diagnosis of your disease. Therefore, you should check yourself directly to the nearest doctor. To identify the cause of your complaint, apart from a physical examination, the doctor can also perform supporting tests, such as a biopsy. The treatment can later be given through the provision of eye drops, topical drugs, drinking drugs, or surgery.
At this time, you should not force the lump that appears under your ear just yet. Bathe diligently and thoroughly clean the area around your ears. Avoid getting your eyes exposed to dust, pollutants, and excessive sun exposure. To minimize inflammation in the eye, you can first shed artificial tears.
Hope it helps ..
