Swollen glands on face

Common Questions and Answers about Swollen glands on face

swollen

about two days ago I developed what I now think is are bites on the side of face, below my sideburns. It looks like acne in a cyst form, but it itches, and now for the past 36 hours my gland near that area (near my ear) has been swollen. Am I having an allergic reaction to something like a spider bite? What can I do?
One area is the gland on my neck right beneath my face, which i assume is my lymph node (only swollen on one side). The second swollen area is directly beneath my chin. Both areas are very tender to the touch. Besides the swelling, I feel fine...no fever, cold, etc. Is this something to worry about, and should I wait a little before consulting a doctor?
Would heavy alcohol drinking make your hiv swollen glands reappear. Would they be swollen all over the body or just in a few places. Does a hiv rash on the face present itself only during ars or consistently for years afterwards.
swollen face - left cheekbone and side of eye, have no tears in left eye so am unable to cry. Seems to occur anytime of day or night and when I have been sitting down for some time. Nobody seems to know what it is. There is no pain, but I do have a headache on the left not at the same time of swelling though. Have you any thoughts. I also have a prolapsed disc in L5 and sciatica down right leg and hip.
can swollen glands caused by mumps disappear within hours of appearing?
However, for about 3 weeks now I have noticed my lymph nodes under my chin have been tender and sometimes swollen. In the past 2 days all the lymph nodes in my neck and face are sore and a little swollen. I have a slight fever but none of the other symptoms associated with HIV. I have also been experiencing a discomfort in my stomache and sometimes cramps. Last week I had a full blood count done which showed up as normal.
I have seen him once before and he said Virus can get in those glands and stay for a long peroid of time, massage and use warm face cloths on them. When they swell it is painful. My nurologist told me yesterday that I have post nasal dripping down the back of my throat. I have had sinus problems most of my life. She had me use a nasal rinse but a small amount dripped into my throat and made it worse. So I will not do that again. I believe my left ear is blocked with wax.
I understand it's not really dangerous, but the last time it happended, I was left with a lymph node swollen on the right side of my face. Your post was very timely to for me, all this is just happened this time with more pain, so I'm going to see if my doc can help. Can't wait to try to explain this to my GP, he doesn't know a lot about Hep C, I will be educating him. I think I just need a lab to make sure my white count is not really high, make sure the infection is going away.
I have both of my underarms swollen around the muscle, and on my right side a round pushy pimple looking bump. Not sure what type of doctor to go to, I have just been to a dermo, who burned alot off my face. What do you suggest?
My 6 yr old daughter's face {below the ear on the face}was so swollen it looked like she had an orange in her cheek. It was very painful to her the only thing that helped was tylenol. I took her to the dr. and he said that she had the mumps!! By the way she has had all of her shots. He sent her home and said there was nothing that could be done for it. The swelling left in about 2 to 3 days. Four weeks later the same thing happened on the other side of her face. I took her to a different dr.
While I am working on ridding myself of this disease, is there anything I can do to get rid of my swollen glands, aka chipmunk cheeks, jowels? I've tried anti-inflamatory meds. and have been on antibiotics but neither have made a bit of a difference. Any suggestions?

A few days after the swelling i had a sore throat and blisters on both sides of my tounge this went away in afew days but the glands are still swollen!What is wrong??
With out medical benifits its been exhausting. I also have swollen glands everywhere on my body. I have these cyst like areas in my head, chest, breast, legs, arms, sides, stomach, and throat. The ones in my head has grew since December and now there is another. Went to ER because head was hurting and my left ear hurts alot. The doctor says a cat scan don't show anything but maybe fatty tissue. How is that when it is growing in my head. I am lost Markie, myself.
Not ignoring the feeling of discomfort under my arm he has recommeded still going for the ultrasound next week but there are no lumps or bumps there now and the swollen lymph glands have gone down. The doc has given me anti inflammatory painkillers and recommended physio to treat the trapped nerve.
Hey. Glad you went to the dr finally. When I went my node had been swollen for a week, my blood was fine. He said if I had a serious prob, by the time the gland swelled my blood would have been off. Still, I didn't feel better about it. I have to go give my blood tomorrow for the surgery Wednesday. I have been crying a lot, but I swear the celexa has helped me a lot. I didn't notice it at first, but I think it does. I am still leaning on a thyroid nodule, probably malignant, due to the node.
After 2 weeks on PEP all my glands swelled up. They are still swollen and I now have a acne type rash on my face and red like sunburn around my neck. I have not had acne since I was 17 years old. I have diahorrea. It is now 5 months since the high risk exposure. Could this be ARS now? I have seen other posts which say that PEP does not affect the antibodys produced but surely it would if the viral load was reduced significantly?
Today he has glands all over his body that are swollen. One on the side of his face, several on his back,and a sore swollen gland at the end of his rib on his right side. He looks terrible and miserable. What does he have. What bit him?
It got worse and my glands near my ear are painful and swollen and extends all the way down my neck on the right side. The whole right side of my face is swollen. I have a sore throat and drainage. I went back and Dr. asked me if I was allergic to sulfa, I said yes. (I said yes, the first time too.) Now they gave me Cipro drops which I have been taking along with Benedryl the last 24 hours and it hasn't gotten better at all.
It is very painful and I find it difficult to swallow. I have painful swollen glands around my face and neck. If last time is an indication, the doctor reported that my throat looks mildly inflamed. I also get ulcers in my throat when this happens. My sinuses feel clear and I don't have any cough or irritation which would be associated with a postnasal drip.
I went to sleep and woke up with it quite a lot more swollen, and also two or three quite heavily swollen and sore on the left side as well. On the Monday just gone, I had 4 dental implants inserted into my top front set of teeth. My dentist has informed me this wouldn't be to do with the glands as the glands under the jaw don't drain from the top set of teeth?
I have been concerned about swollen glands in my armpit groin and neck for about a month. My friend, who is a family practice physician confirmed that my glands were swollen in my neck and armpits..I did not have him check my groin but I know they are. He seemed scared for me and mentioned cancer in passing. After doing research on the web everything is leaning to HIV. Now I am scared too. I have had unprotected sex with 4 women in the past year. Casusal encounters.
At first I was experiencing swollen salivary glands due to the radiation treatment. On my yearly scan we noticied that I had a lot of 'uptake' on the right side of my face. My endrocronologist told me this was normal. This was last year in Oct. and I still am having pain and discomfort. We have scheduled a scan for this Wed. but wondering if anyone out there had a similiar situation, where uptake showed in the parotid gland area???
my question is do i really hve 2 do surgery?ITS been 4 days and my face is stll swollen nw my right side is also startng 2 swel 4 hw lng does the swellng last.
But the condition still persists after 4 weeks, even if less swelling occurs. A coworker had a swollen face during the same time but I do believe something is blocking my left salivary ducts. Does anyone have experience with this? My physician has a wait-and-see approach. I just wonder if I should think in terms of blockage or infection. Thanks in advance.
I also have swollen glands most of the time which I relate to my Fibromyalgia. Sometimes my armpits get very sore and I'll notice the glands are swollen.
I was diagnosed with a salivary gland problem about 8 months ago by head and neck specialist my family doctor sent me to after treating me with AVELOX (which made me sick by the way)BUT THE PROBLEM GOT SOMEWHAT BETTER but the gland under my jaw was still a bit swollen. The doctor I saw (head and neck/surgeon also) said it was my salivary gland(s) -- I might need to take antibiotics off and on depending on how things went.
In some cases, surgery is called for, but I don't recommend it unless you have to 'cause it is painful and you lose the use of your arm for a few weeks. (I have had this done.) Depending on how swollen you are the doctor may lance it, again not pleasant but infinitely hellpful. I am kinda suprised the ER doctor didn't catch this. Good luck!!!!
