Area on my lower jaw closest to the war is killing me, I also discivered a painful pimple-like whitehead on my stensen duct on left cheek. Any ideas?
Jaw pain: Not sure what 'war' is but it may be tooth related, like a wisdom tooth. When you are describing things like stensens duct, it seems you're doing a lot of 'searching'. In fact most wouldn't know how a normal stensen's duct would appear and it's unlikely it's causing lower jaw pain as it's an upper cheek/jaw structure. See an oral surgeon instead of trying to diagnose yourself. ...Read more

A great question and best answered with a face to face visit with your pediatrician. ...Read more

If the gland cannot empty the mucous it creates a sac full that bulges out into the mouth until it ruptures ...Read more
