Swollen Gums Accompanied By A Low-grade Fever?
Hello introduce I am a 30 year old man. I want to ask, precisely yesterday on the day of 20 suddenly my gums in the Graham section were swollen lightly. After that I decided to take the drug for the pain reliever, the pain subsided. However, I had a moderate fever afterwards and even tonight. Is this effect normal or what? Please enlighten me
Thank you Fahri for asking at HealthReplies.com.
I will try to help answer.
Complaints of pain in the teeth, swelling and fever caused by:
Gum inflammation or gingivitis: is an inflammation that occurs in the teeth, can be caused by viruses or bacteria. Symptoms are felt in the form of pain in the teeth, swollen teeth and redness. Dental caries: is an infection of the teeth caused by viruses, bacteria. Symptoms are felt in the form, pain in the teeth, swelling of the teeth, cavities, teeth feel throbbing, even fever. The situation experienced by you may be an infection of the teeth, so that the teeth experience swelling, pain and fever. The drug consumed is a medicine to relieve pain, not a source of infection, so the pain disappears but the fever has not disappeared.
To better know the symptoms caused by what disease. We recommend that you consult a dentist. Later the doctor will do a physical examination related to complaints that arise, or maybe even require additional examination.
Some things to do at home:
Compress the swollen parts with ice water Avoid hot and spicy foods Avoid cold drinks Thus a brief explanation from me, hopefully can help. thanks.
