Hello Dina,


Thank you for the question.

Swelling and sensation of lumps felt around the neck to the cheeks accompanied by sore eyes, fever up and down, and difficulty sleeping, may arise due to:


Parotitis (mumps, inflammation of the salivary glands)

Gingivitis (inflammation of the gums)

Maxillary or mandibular abscesses (pus-filled sacs that appear due to infection)

Lymphadenitis (inflammation of lymph nodes, often occurs due to tuberculosis, or can also occur due to paint scratch disease, syphilis, HIV)
Others, such as mastoiditis, benign or malignant tumors around the neck to cheeks (such as for example tongue cancer, throat cancer), skin infections (such as bacteria or viruses), post-injury, allergic or irritant contact dermatitis, insect bites, insect eruptions , etc

The step you check your complaint directly to the doctor is actually right. That way, the possibility of dangerous conditions can be identified and dealt with early on. However, if after undergoing the doctor's handling your complaint has not improved, then you should check yourself back to the doctor so that it is evaluated more deeply, for example with x-rays, ultrasound, blood tests, biopsies, or maybe other supporting tests. So that treatment can be given more comprehensively, maybe the doctor will refer you to a surgeon, ENT or internal medicine specialist later.


In the meantime, we urge you to do it first:

Warm compresses on the neck to swollen cheeks
Raise the swollen neck and cheeks, for example by using a higher pillow while sleeping, or lying on your left side
Limit consumption of foods that are too hard, chewy, and difficult to swallow first
Drink more
Diligent bathing, brushing teeth, continued rinsing with salt solution
Do not smoke
If a fever appears, relieve it first by taking the drug paracetamol

Hope this helps ...
