They can be removed by a dermatologist or other surgeon if large. If small injections with steroid can help decrease them in size and reduce pain. ...Read more

Wisdom teeth: Have you seen a dentist? Do you still have your wisdom teeth? This is a common finding with a condition called pericoronitis from impacted wisdom teeth. You should see a dentist ASAP to rule out any type of tooth/gum related problem. If your teeth and gums look fine atleast then your GP can focus on other possible causes. ...Read more

Can TMJ cause ear pain. Soreness under ear and a little discomfort in front of ear. Ear pain is a deep ache. Jaw opens crooked and pops. Comes & goes.

TMJ ear pain: What you are describing is very suggestive of TMJ inflammation especially if you have malocclusion ( teeth don't fit properly). You can take Ibuprofen for the pain, avoid chewing gum, avoid straining the jaw by yawning. You will likely need a dental split or appliance prescribed or created for you by your dentist to minimize the joints hypermobility. You should see your dentist soon. ...Read more

TMJ: It's possible that you have "Temporomandibular Joint syndrome", also known as "TMJ Syndrome". This is not scary, and most of the time it resolves on it's own, if you experience pain, tylenol or Ibuprofen are okay to take. If or gets worse, you can see a doctor for prescription medication and sometimes they can do an injection. Grinding your teeth at night is a common cause. Best wishes! ...Read more

TMJ: These are all symptoms of TMJ dysfunction. Most TMJ dysfunction is caused by bruxism (chronic teeth grinding and/or clenching), or a bad bite. Make an appointment with your dentist or a dentist who treats TMJ dysfunction for an examination. You might also want to see an ENT specialist to rule out any ear or head and neck infections. ...Read more

Pain and dysfunction: If the tmj/tmd issues last for awhile, some symptoms can affect the ear (s) in many ways. You may develop ringing in the ears; earaches, popping-grating-clicking that is heard constantly in the ears; roaring muffled sounds; hearing loss; on and on. It is better to see an ENT first if you have ear symptoms to rule out it being the ears as the source of the problem. ...Read more
