What can cause swollen glands under chin like close to the throat?! help please freakin out ! I have a tooth abcess! do I have ludwings agnia?

Abscessed tooth: An abscessed lower back tooth can cause swollen glands in the area you describe. Your glands (lymph nodes) swell up when they are fighting an infection in that area. This is what they are supposed to do. It is unlikely that you have ludwig's angina. Regardless you need to see a dentist or an oral surgeon tomorrow morning. They may place you on an antibiotic to help shrink the infection. ...Read more

Left side of my head including jaw , hurting often what could it be is it just sinus or a tooth thats been bad hot and cold qater hurts ....Thank you f?

Sounds like a tooth!: Pain in the back of the upper jaw could be due either to a dental problem or a sinus problem. If it hurts when you drink cold or hot liquids, it's more likely a tooth that may be abscessed. You may need a root canal or even a tooth extraction, it's hard to tell. A dentist or a specialist such as an endodontist could be able to tell you whether it's a tooth or your sinuses. ...Read more

Ask the dentist: Your dentist should give you the instruction and medication for stopping the pain.

From what you described, it is very likely the tooth has infection involving the nerve. The definitive solution should be root canal therapy or extraction. At mean time, the dentist might place you under antibiotics and pain medication to control the the syptom.

Do ask your dentist! ...Read more

Pain medication (such as ibuprofen) will help but the radiating pain may be a sign that your dental infection is getting worse.

Had a tooth infection which was treated Dec 14th but before being treated my chin and left side is all numb - I am on penicillin will this go away.

99% of the time yes: If the tooth has been treated by extraction or root canal and the abcess resolves, the pressure on the mandibular nerve dissipates and normal feeling returns. If penicillin only has been relied upon for treatment, the abcess and pressure on the nerve can persist or return(the tooth must be removed or root canal done for healing though). ...Read more

See a surgeon...: Many times swelling under the jaw is an inflamed lymph node or salivary gland. However, if a course of antibiotics has failed, it may be a good idea to see if a surgeon would recommend a biopsy to see what is causing the swelling. It may be something as simple as a cyst that needs drained or a blocked salivary duct. Following this up is important make sure it isn't something more serious. ...Read more
