I am having left sided swelling and ear pain. I have sinus…

Customer Question
I am having left...

I am having left sided facial swelling and ear pain. I have sinus polyps which seem to be worse on the left side and was recently treated with antibiotics and prednisone about 3 weeks ago. I am having ear pain with the facial swelling. Wondering if it would be a combination of the sinus polyps.

Doctor's Assistant: Are you experiencing any dizziness? Do you have a fever?

No dizziness and no fever

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Not that would have anything to do with this condition.

is it right in front of the ear?

The swelling is in my check and jaw line.
Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 8 months ago

Yes, I think this is parotitis

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I was on amoxicillin and I ended that about 2 weeks ago. I was on that due to being sick with a cold. I do have at home cefdinir. Could I take that?
Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 8 months ago

you need augmentin or clindamycin

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
