The Cheek Is Swollen After Using The Slimming Tool On The Cheek?
I am 18 years old teenager. At that time, I used a body slimming tool called “relax and spin tone”. It was round, jagged, covered with cloth and twisted when turned on. And I use the tool on my left cheek, when I use it, maybe I press too hard, I’m not sure. But after using it a little hurt. And the swelling of my left cheek was different from my right cheek. Think I will lose a few days, because it’s just a normal swelling. The thing is, I also like to have swollen cheeks when I take certain drugs. Because I have a drug allergy. But it has been almost 2 months, my cheeks have not returned to normal, they are still swollen. When using the slimming tool I did not use any drugs. So just use it on the cheek. What is the solution, I have used warm water to compress the swelling, but the swelling does not heal. What part do I have to see a doctor? And can my cheeks return to normal? Is there a traditional way I can do it at home? The problem is when I compress it using warm water, it doesn’t flatten either.
Hi, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The tool you mentioned is used to relax muscles that are experiencing tension by applying pressure to them. Excessive pressure applied to the muscles can cause the muscles to become inflamed, in medical language it is called myositis. Each muscle has a different resistance to pressure, depending on the size and thickness of the muscle.
When you wear the device you mention, the pressure that the device produces can damage cheek tissue such as the parotitis glands (saliva), cheek muscles, nerves and blood vessels.
You can continue the warm compress on the swollen area. In addition, you should take anti-inflammatory drugs to help with immediate healing. You really need to pay attention, not all drugs can cause allergies, you should consult a general practitioner at the nearest clinic so that you get anti-inflammatory drugs that are safe for you. To temporarily relieve the work of your cheek muscles, you should eat soft foods first until the complaints improve. You must be careful and seek medical help immediately, if accompanied by any of the following complaints:
1. Cheeks getting swollen.
2. Cheeks that are swollen for a long time like bruises.
3. Slurred lips or slurred speech.
4. The wrinkles of the forehead and the corners of the eyes appear asymmetrical.
5. Thus, hopefully this is useful.
