Hello, I want to ask that my lower eyelid has been swollen for 3 days, but I don’t feel any other complaints other than swelling … But this morning my cheek jaw was also a swollen, what kind of disease would it be? ? thank you
Thank you for the question.
Swelling in the eyelids, cheeks, and jaws that appear suddenly without any complaints may occur purely because of excessive emphasis on these areas, for example if you sleep too long pressing the area of your eyes, cheeks, and jaw.
It could also, the swelling that you experience arises due to other factors, for example excessive crying, exhausted, allergic, bitten by insects or other animals, gingivitis, blepharitis, viral or bacterial infections, parotitis, side effects of certain drugs, kidney disorders, heart problems, hormonal disorders, immune disorders, malignancies, and so on.
If indeed the swelling seems more widespread, you should not let it. Go directly to see your doctor so that a more in-depth evaluation related to the complaint, namely by physical examination, or maybe supporting tests, such as allergy tests, x-rays, blood tests, and so on. At home, you can first overcome the swelling by:
Rest more, position your head and neck higher, do not overdo the swollen side Do not sleep too late at night, especially to stay up late Drink plenty of water, and eat foods that are easily swallowed Do not overdo eating salty or flavorful foods Regular exercise Diligently brush your teeth and rinse with salt solution Stay away from all the substances that might make you allergic Do not always take any medicine without doctor's advice Hope it helps ..
