Small Lump In The Cheek Area That Feels Painful And Watery?
Evening doctor, r nI want to ask. On the left cheek, not far from my nose, there was a lump that was initially small like a pimple that was about to grow, but it has been 2 days since the lump got bigger if it hurt. Like there’s water in it. Why is that?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
A small lump on the cheek area that feels painful and watery can be caused by the following conditions:
Acne vulgaris (acne, inflammation of the pilosebaceous glands) Herpes zoster (reactivation of the Varicella zoster virus, shingles) Impetigo (bacterial infection) Folliculitis (hair root infection) Irritant contact dermatitis (inflammation of the skin due to contact with an irritating substance) Scabies (scabies, Sarcoptes infection scabiei) Insect bites Benign or malignant tumors, etc. Mostly, the lumps as you are experiencing are harmless and can disappear by natural treatment coupled with optimal immune system. You can do the following steps first so that the lump will deflate or burst on its own:
Clean facial skin regularly when showering and after using cosmetics Reduce the use of cosmetics that are too thick Do not apply anything to the bumps that appear without doctor's advice Do not squeeze or peel off excessive bumps Use sunscreen to protect your skin from direct sun exposure Protect your skin from exposure to exposure to pollution, dust, and other irritants Do not exchange cosmetics, powder puffs, or other personal items with other people Sleep more regularly Do not stress too much If the complaint does not improve in 3 days, or the size is getting bigger and spread to other areas of the mosque or other body, You should check yourself directly to a doctor or a dermatologist to get the best treatment.
I hope this helps.
