Avatar m tn It is difficult to comment without examination. Lump under the ear could also be an abscess, folliculitis (hair follicle infection), lipoma (localized collection of fat), a cyst, an inflamed lymph node or a neurofibroma (localized harmless swelling in of nerve and connective tissue). It could also be TMJ. Please consult your PCP for a preliminary examination. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar n tn For 2 weeks I have been dealing with a very painful abscess on my ear, where after alot of research and several trips to a local medical clinic and ER, I have found that what I have is an abscess in the Preauricular pit/sinus. I have been given 3 rounds of antibiotics, one of which I am still taking (Clindamyacin). I have yet to see any improvement from taking the antibiotics, so I went to the ER yesterday where they attempted to do and Incision and Drainage procedure.
Avatar m tn I just recently got a lump under my skin near the bottom of my butt crack. I had it for about 3 days. Its about the size of a 50 cents piece, and its hard and sore. Its very very sore in one spot. I haven't noticed a change in my skin color. I've read that it could be from an infection of some sort. An ear piercing that I have got infected from using non gold about a week ago. I don't have health insurance yet, so I don't want to waste a bucnh of money if it is something I can do at home.
Avatar n tn filling for two weeks until I come back to finish it up) but the right one hasn't had any work done yet. I kept getting ear infections and tooth pain, so I've been placed on pain meds and amoxicillin/z-pak for the past month to keep things under control (not continuously mind you.
Avatar n tn I'm a 24 year old female-A couple of months ago I woke up with a painful pea to marble sized lump under the skin on my ear. It is located right where my ear connects to my head, on the bottom. Like if I were to pull my earlobe away from my head, it is in that "flap" of skin. Because it was painful and hard, I assumed it was a boil as I have had these in the past. I treated it with warm washclothes and heating pads, but the lump never softened or drained, however, the pain did go away.
Avatar m tn Hello my name is Sanj. About a month and a half to two months ago i developed an ear infection in first my right then left ears, after a while it came back to my right ear but i didnt go to the doc.
Avatar n tn So, you could see if any of the draining areas have any evidence of infection, like tonsils, the skin, tooth abscess or an ear infection. Infections like tuberculosis can cause lymph adenopathy. The other causes for enlarged nodes are tumors or inflammations to name a few. You may need to consult your primary care physician who will examine you and initiate appropriate therapy. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn on day 6 of my antibiotics and have 1 day left to go till they are finished but i am still in pain.
5887486 tn?1376108191 You could see if any of the draining areas have any evidence of infection, like the throat, tonsils, the skin, tooth abscess or an ear infection. If you develop any additional symptoms like sore throat or ear pain or fever, consult your primary care physician for proper clinical assessment. In the meantime for pain relief you can use OTC Tylenol (acetaminophen). Regards.
Avatar m tn I developed this lump under my skin near my right ear/jawline. It has been present for approximately 3 months and has doubled in size and is now approximately the size of a quarter. It started during a shingles episode, although I did not have a shingles outbreak in this part of my body. However, it started as neck fullness in that area which developed into a lump along my jaw line area that has persistently gotten larger over the past 3 months.
Avatar n tn I have a lump under my scalp on the top of my head. I asked 2 different doctors about it and they both told me that it's just a fat deposit. This is my regular family doctor's office though. It's a medical group. Anyway I wanted to know if I should get a second opinion on this. The bump doesn't hurt or anything it's just kind of annoying and bothersome because I know that it's there. Please answer my question. It would be greatly appreciated because I'm in desperate need of an answer.
Avatar n tn Hi Doctor, I have been to several doctors including an ENT for my ear problems. I have had sinus pain/ pressure/ and migraines. The ENT subscribed something but it didnt work. The other doctor said theres nothing wrong with me. Instead of saying, " I dont know whats wrong with you, I would have preferred that or recommend me to another doctor or specialist. In my mind, I was thinking I am fine but its all in my head, as my doctor pretty much put it.
Avatar f tn It showed up there after eating breakfast yesterday, and the swelling is still there. I also get a swelling under my right ear when i eat as well. But that seems to go after about 15 minutes. Can u tell me what this is.
Avatar n tn I urge you to at least call your dentist for approval before you treat a dental abscess yourself. Amoxicillin may be fine, but you may need something like clindamycin instead. Also, it's very important that a FULL dose is taken for dental infections. Not to do so will only breed yourself a stronger bacteria in the future that can do more damage. Dental abscess rarely go away without some kind of eventual medical intervention. GOOD LUCK and please let us know how you do.
Avatar n tn Also I believe these are related to stress, I developed a rash(hives) on my neck and the bottom part of my ear all of a sudden began to swell. I did go to the doctor and she gave me some cream to rub on my ear and some different cream for my neck and she frooze that wart on my arm. I did have a fever the day I went to the doctors but I felt fine. That night when I went home I began thinking that my arm pit hurt that morning when I put deodorant on.
Avatar n tn Maybe 6 month ago I noticed a hard lump behind my ear, then later another one. They are both hard but don't hurt at all. I have been under a lot of stress and guess that is the way my body reacted. I went to the doctor and she said that they were lymph nodes. To exclude any serious suspicions she recommended to take a blood test. It came with everything normal. I asked her if they will go away and she said that it all depends on what kind of lumps are they.
Avatar n tn I to have recently discovered a pea sized lump under the skin right between my my left ear and the back of my cheek bone it is painless and doesn't move. if i try to move it i get a feeling of pressure in the surrounding area for a time after, i am scheduled for an ultrasound next week to investigate further.
Avatar n tn It showed up a couple of days ago right in the crease where the ear meets the head, just above my earlobe. The bump is about the size of a pea and just under the skin. It aches constantly and is especially painful when touched. What could it be? It's not a pimple, and I'm fairly certain it's not a swollen lymph node, because I've had swollen lymph nodes behind my ears before and they were never this painful.
Avatar f tn The pain from the tooth abscess has spred from the far left cornor of my jaw to my ear and even under my chin. I can't see a denist till next week and this is only getting worse. I already went to the er that is how i got these meds. The clidamycin is also making me very sick to my stomic. I ate some soup to take it last night and ended up hugging the trash can at my job for little over 20 min till nothing was left to come up.
Avatar n tn well i am pretty self aware and two days ago i noticed a kidney bean shaped soft bump directly behind my left ear. it took less than a day to go from nothing to bean sized. it is soft for the most part, if i feel near the top of it, it feels kinda hard, like a layer under the puss maybe. i can move it a little, definetly feels like it is filled with puss. i have in the past had a bump appear, only to shrink and harden and eventualy i will forget about it, i had one on my upper eyelid.
Avatar f tn I have had swollen under right ear painful cant eat only able to drink in small amounts sips, went to dr had ct scan said nothing was wrong still painful and all I am doing is sleeping
522336 tn?1215884409 Around April or May of last year I noticed a little bump just inside my nose. Since I've occasionally gotten small pimples just inside my nose I attempted to bust it. I actually got a little "white stuff", like one would get from a pimple, out of it but it was too painful to continue messing with. I left it alone after putting a cotton ball soaked with alcohol on it in the hopes that would dry it out and go away.
Avatar f tn I have a big bump under my arm and it keep coming back. It comes back in the same shape and place under my arm and today it popped because of the way my arm was positioned, and some stuff that was not thick like pus but had the consistency of like syrup. And I squeezed it a little more then I seen blood so I stopped and now I have a tissue under my arm and theres brown stuff on it like old blood. And I also put vaseline in it and that didn't help.
Avatar n tn Dogs, because of their habit of scratching ears with back feet, can occasionally get dirt into a scratch, and it can form an abscess. Also, in that position (around the ear/neck area) infection could arise from a collar which has chafed the skin or rubbed dirt in. Some lumps are made up of fatty tissue.(Lipomas, which are benign, and normally do not need to be removed unless they grow or cause pressure on surrounding tissues.
Avatar m tn I have a HUGE bump behind my ear I think it's too far up to be a lymph node. I think it might be filled with liquid but it feels hard. What is this!!!?
Avatar n tn Anyone having ear fullness WITH side neck pain under that ear...horrible..driving me nuts! MRI tomorrow! Will let you know.
Avatar n tn 3 hours ago a hard lump about golf ball size appeared under my jaw, left side between chin and ear. Not painful to touch, but slight discomfort swallowing. It seems to go up and down in size.
Avatar f tn I have a cyst like bump on the back of my ear that I thought might be a pimple (that's been bugging me for a while) and tonight i tried to pop it. But all that came out was puss and blood. My ear is still hard where the bump is and now its swollen, burning, I feel dizzy and have a headache. Not too sure what to do?
