Pain Under The Ear?
I have swelling under my left ear, at first it was just a normal pain, then at night when I went to sleep it suddenly became swollen And accompanied by excruciating pain, And it hurt all the way to my teeth, And every day the swelling was getting worse under my right ear. Now it’s also swollen, until my voice changed But no phlegm.rnWhat do you think I’m sick???
Pain behind the ear accompanied by swelling or a lump behind the ear can be caused by several things, including:
Otitis media or middle ear tract infection Mumps Inflammation of the mastoid bone or mastoiditis Swollen lymph nodes Abscess or collection of pus due to bacterial infection For this reason, it is necessary to pay attention to other accompanying symptoms, if fever, night sweats, weight loss, sore throat are getting worse severe to the point of difficulty eating, difficulty breathing, or swelling becomes greater immediately consult a doctor.
The doctor will also perform a series of examinations, both physical examinations and necessary support to find the cause. If the cause is a bacterial infection, the doctor will provide treatment in the form of antibiotics. You can take temporary pain relievers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen and see your doctor right away.
