Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello. I would like to help you find an answer.
Any signs of infection anywhere? Like a tooth infection or something?
Also, any new medicines, foods, detergents or soaps?
Okay, it sounds like you have an infection. It could be a tooth, sinus, skin infection.
Generally swelling and pain in this area is related to an infection.
I think you need to see a doc right away. Facial infections are serious and can spread rapidly. Go to urgent care and get it looked at. You probably need antibiotics.
It can get really bad like spreading to your blood or brain.
If you have an infected tooth that is spreading like this, that is VERY serious.
You need to go to the hospital today.
It may be an abscess that needs to be drained. Antibiotics will help it immediately but it may take up to a few weeks to resolve.
I see. That sucks you can't see a doc. The abscess could be under the tooth and not on the skin.
I think this is a medical emergency sir. You need to do whatever it takes to see a doc.
Thanks for the accept. Don't forget positive feedback. I appreciate it. :)
If you need more help or clarification, please ask.
