The Injection In The Salivary Gland Causes A Small Hole?
I was 7 years old with a goiter for 1 month, then was taken to the puskesmas and then the doctor was injected but until now the injection marks did not disappear and caused a small hole … every time I chewed on the psti always came out of water … yesterday I checked up the doctor said, the salivary gland got the syringe … then what is that?
Good evening, thanks for the question
Salivary fistulas can form mainly due to a history of trauma including certain medical procedures, followed by conditions of malignancy, or infection. Fistula is an abnormal duct that connects to other organs. In this case, if symptoms are found under the skin, a possible fistula suspicion is related to facial skin.
To ensure this clinical suspicion, a direct physical examination by a doctor and other supporting examinations is needed, bearing in mind that this condition is quite rare. This condition can be treated non-operatively, for example by administering antibiotics, covering the wound with a bandage, or aspiration of fluid periodically. Some cases for example due to suppurative inflammation in the salivary glands may be treated with surgery.
For future treatment plans according to your final diagnosis, consult a surgeon.
That's all, hope you can help.
