Hello Sskandry, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Pain in the jaw can interfere with daily activities such as talking, eating, and others. The discomfort caused can come from the jaw and surrounding organs such as teeth or ears. The complaint that you feel can be caused by various causes including:
Outer ear infection
Bone infection / osteomyelitis
Jaw joint disorders
To find out the exact cause of course it is necessary to do a direct physical examination and supporting examinations that are needed such as blood tests, X-ray examination, and so on.
For that, several things that can be done now are:
Eat foods that are soft or as small as possible so that they are easy to eat
Avoid foods that are chewy or sticky like chewing gum
Avoid yawning too wide
Compress the painful part with warm water or ice water
Take paracetamol if it feels painful to relieve it
If the complaint continues or is burdensome, contact your doctor immediately for further treatment. Stay alert if you have to get out of the house in the middle of the current COVID-19 pandemic, wear a mask and avoid using public transportation whenever possible.
That's all, hope it helps.
