Swelling In The Neck Right Below The Ear?
Evening Doctor, I want to ask if there is a swelling in the neck on the right side below the ear, what kind of disease is that? at first it itchy the neck got swollen. But after a few days the swelling deflated and continued to swell again
Hello Delciane, Thank you for the question,
What other symptoms are you experiencing? Swelling in the neck area under the ear can be caused by:
swollen lymph nodes, this occurs in response to the body's defense against infection. Usually the size of the lymph nodes will return to normal after the infection clears up
mastoiditis, which is inflammation of the mastoid bone located behind the ear as a complication of a middle ear infection
Any complaints of swelling in the neck area should be examined by a doctor directly to determine the cause. The doctor needs to ask further questions about your complaint and conduct tests to determine the cause and determine the next treatment.
Please keep your health by consuming nutritious foods, exercising regularly and getting enough rest. Avoid smoking and drinking alcohol. If the area feels itchy, avoid scratching the itchy area. Try salicylic powder or calamine lotion for itching.
