The Cause Appears Several Lumps In The Child’s Jaw?
My child has a lump, there are a few bumps around the bottom of the jaw near the ear, not too big, on the right and left, and under the jaw on the chin, if touched like small zits, there isn’t much in the skin / flesh , there is also the right side of the neck, like a swollen vein, but it does not hurt, guess what?
Thank you for the question.
Lumps that spread in the lower area of the jaw, near the ear, and the right neck may be swollen lymph nodes (lymphadenopathy). In children, these conditions are often caused by infections, for example throat infections, ear infections, infections of the oral cavity, measles, tuberculosis, cytomegalovirus, cellulitis, HIV, toxoplasmosis, and so on. Besides infection, other factors, such as lupus, rheumatic fever, lymphoma, leukemia, to other cancer metastases can also cause lymphadenopathy.
Other factors, such as folliculitis, skin tags, warts, benign or malignant tumors, hyperkeratosis, enlargement of the thyroid gland, mumps, and so on can also cause lumps in various areas as your sister experienced.
To be clear, you can check your child directly to the doctor or pediatrician. Follow-up tests, such as the Mantoux test, ultrasound, biopsy, x-rays, etc. can also be done by a doctor so that the handling needs to be clear to resolve your child's complaints.
In the meantime, what can be done is:
Keep your child's body always clean
Also keep the environment around the child so that it is clean, well-ventilated and well-lit, and away from people who are infectious
Increase the child's endurance, by giving him a variety of balanced nutritious food, let him get enough rest, and accompany him to live a healthy lifestyle in his daily life
Do not carelessly squeeze, prick, or give treatment to the lump
Hope this helps ...
