The Lump On The Left Neck And Cheek Was Painful Due To Toothache?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Toothache often occurs due to cavities and infection. If the hole that appears is deep enough, this infection in the tooth can trigger inflammation that spreads to other areas around the tooth, including the gums, submandibular area (around the neck), ears, and so on. This condition may cause you to experience pain in the neck, cheek, and ear area. The spread of inflammation from the teeth to other areas around it can also cause the lymph nodes to become inflamed, causing a lump in the neck area. The thrush you are experiencing may occur related to irritation of the lips or inner oral cavity due to bites or scratches from a broken tooth. Can also, canker sores arise due to infection in the oral cavity (including one that is a trigger and complication of cavities), vitamin C deficiency, immune system disorders, oral cancer, and various other causes.
Not only that, maybe also, all of your complaints are related to other factors, for example:
Parotitis (mumps, salivary gland infection)
Tonsillopharyngitis (inflammation of the tonsils and throat)
Otitis media (middle ear infection)
Jaw joint disorders, for example due to rheumatoid arthritis, jaw joint dislocation
Other viral or bacterial infections, including lymphadenitis, sialadenitis, skin infections around the neck or head
Malignancy around the throat, and so on
How long have you been experiencing the complaints above? Do you also have fever, swelling in the head or neck area, painful swallowing, coughing, vomiting, or other complaints?
Determining which of the many possibilities above that trigger your complaint needs to be done by examining a doctor directly. You can also do supporting tests, such as blood tests, ultrasound, and so on so that treatment can be done right on target. Therefore, you should first check your complaint with the nearest doctor.
At this time, you can first resolve your complaint with the following steps:
Take paracetamol first so that the pain in your head and neck eases
Get plenty of rest
Cut down on activities that drain a lot of energy first
Not talking or yelling too often
Maintain personal hygiene, including by bathing and brushing your teeth, followed by gargling salt solution regularly in the morning and evening
Compress the sore neck and cheek area with warm water
Not being in close contact with other people who are experiencing contagious illnesses (especially those whose symptoms are similar to what you are currently experiencing)
Expand to eat foods rich in vitamin C and drink water
