In determining the diagnosis of disease and planning the right treatment for a person's medical condition, the doctor needs to carry out several examinations, supporting examinations such as ultrasound, blood checks are examinations that are useful for supporting doctors in getting more information if the results of the physical examination still do not provide adequate information. enough.
That's why doctors need to do a basic assessment in the form of a physical examination and a question and answer session before planning the supporting examination, because if from the results of the assessment it turns out that what Yuni is complaining about actually tends to be a medical condition that cannot be found any abnormalities through ultrasound or blood examinations, of course it will so useless. So before checking this, it would be better if Yuni returned to the doctor for control.
The use of antibiotics and pain medicine should not be used for a long time and often unless indicated by a doctor, so if the medicine given by the doctor has run out, don't buy it on your own initiative. Because the use of antibiotics too often can cause bacterial resistance (immunity), so that eventually the bacteria will not die if you take the antibiotic, so that later it will be difficult to eradicate the bacteria. Meanwhile, certain pain medications (not all) tend to cause gastric irritation, so try not to take them too often. In addition, both antibiotics and pain medications can aggravate kidney or liver function so that if consumed continuously, especially in large doses, it can interfere with both organs later.
Herbal medicines still require further research, because the benefits are very diverse, some feel they get the benefits from using these herbal medicines, but some feel that there are no benefits whatsoever. In addition, not all herbs are "safe", because even though they are obtained from natural sources, there is still the possibility of causing unexpected effects.
So Yuni is expected to consult a doctor directly first, considering that the submandibular gland involves many medical disciplines, you can consult one of the internal medicine doctors, an ENT (ear nose and throat) doctor, a dentist who specializes in oral diseases. Later he might refer to other disciplines if it is found that what Yuni experienced tends to be in other medical disciplines.
