The Jaw Is So Swollen That It Is Difficult To Open The Mouth Wide?
, I have a swollen jaw, for about 4 days I haven’t healed. At first he hit the cavity and swollen but healed. One day I held my dagi unevenly so I took the initiative to relax with massage oil, but after waking up in the morning it became swollen. I went to the doctor, given it in the afternoon as if I wanted to soften it was swollen but tense at night. Actually, what is the main cause of the swollen jaw in my case? Is it from infection or lymph nodes or something? thank you
Thank you Adinda Ifty for your question on the HealthReplies.com forum, swollen jaw conditions can be caused by several conditions such as:
- the presence of an infectious condition
- due to impact
- a tumor condition
An infectious condition is one of the causes of a swelling, wherein this infection is usually preceded by an injury or other infectious conditions around the jaw, including in the oral cavity and teeth. Where the conditions of infection are generally not recommended for massage, because in this situation it can actually accelerate the spread of this infectious state. In a state of infection usually can be recognized by several symptoms such as:
- may be accompanied by fever
In this condition, usually treatment can be given antibiotics along with other drugs that can help relieve symptoms being experienced. However, if the infectious condition has become an abscess, other procedures are usually needed to remove the pus from the abscess. In your current condition, it is better if you continue with the advice from the doctor who examined you, because of course the doctor who examines you in person will know more about your current condition. However, if within two or three days the condition does not improve or if the symptoms are getting worse, it is better if this can be consulted again with the relevant doctor.
That's all from me, hope it can help
