Your doc is on it.: Without your age or medical conditions no one would be able to answer this intelligently. Obviously they are taking this seriously and doing the right things to get to the bottom of it. Good luck from all of us!

Why does my face feel swollen, it's mainly my lips and also my eye won't blink and it all happened today. Feel like it may be wisdom teeth?

Why does my face feel swollen, it's mainly my lips and also my eye won't blink and it all happened today. Feel like it may be wisdom teeth?

Swollen face from?: From what you describe it doesn't sound like your wisdom teeth are the problem. However, since we can't personally examine you, that's just an educated guess. You should see both your dentist and physician to determine the cause of your symptoms as well as the potential and current health\position of your wisdom teeth.

I have tried antihistamines & triamcinolone nasal spray but I still feel like my sinuses are very congested and face feels swollen. What could it be?

Sinusitis: Sinusitis or a "stuffy nose" is notoriously difficult to treat. Some patients respond more favorably to different intranasal corticosteroids such as mometasone. Other people get benefit from intranasal anticholinergics such as ipraptroprium. Best of luck :)

Face feels swollen but isn't, shortness of breath, shoulder pressure points, some fatigue. Afraid of a lung or lymphoma type cancer. Age 22 non smoker?

Get eval: At 22yo unless you have some family history there would not be a high probability or cancer or lymphoma, and it is good you do not smoke. Get an evaluation by the doc and get your fears alleviated and at the same time get treated for what is causing you to be short of breath, etc.

My face feels more swollen & puffy than usual. I have sinus problems still & I am taking levocetrizine. Could it be allergies? I haven't changed weight

My face feels more swollen & puffy than usual. I have sinus problems still & I am taking levocetrizine. Could it be allergies? I haven't changed weight

Facial swelling: Levocetirizine helps only if the problem is allergies. April is a very high pollen time in AL. If itchy, think allergy. If sinus pain, yellow nasal secretions and sore throat, think sinus infection. If you feel infected, AVOIDING antihistamines helps a lot because they slow recovery. Other causes are possible too: dental, thyroid, angioedema, etc: http://www. Healthline. Com/health/facial-swelling

My face feels and looks swollen, what could be causing it?

My face feels and looks swollen, what could be causing it?

Infection: Normally a swelling in the face is from a tooth/teeth that are infected. This infection can be from the gums or teeth themselves. If the gums are causing the swelling a proper cleaning will help with the infection. If the teeth are causing your swelling a root canal will be done or an extraction to stop the swelling. Best to see your dentist and find out first.

Facial swelling: Ask someone who doesn't see you frequently to tell you if your face is swollen, do you bite on your inner cheek? Is your eye swollen? Are in pain anywhere or having difficulty breathing?

Bad abcess taking clindamycin still face is swollen feels like it is inthe jaw? Still the same abcess same boyfriend

Bad abcess taking clindamycin still face is swollen feels like it is inthe jaw? Still the same abcess same boyfriend

How long?: How long you've been on clyndamycine? It mostly works on abscess from dental origin, so if that infection on the jaw did not feel better on the third day of the clida., then you might need to switch to a more spectrum antibiotic like Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) for example. About that boyfriend. ..I don't know where to begin;).

The: The american academy of pediatrics recommends that you call your child's doctor for advice for anything more than a light bump on the head. If your child is alert, moving normally and responsive to you, then it's most likely a mild injury and you can follow up with your child's doctor in a day or two. It's ok to let them sleep/nap at this point if they are tired. If your child worsens, however, then that would be a reason to go to the emergency room. Other reasons to seek emergency care are: -vomiting -worsening headache -confusion -slurred speech -changes in behavior such as increasing irritability or fussiness -worsening coordination such as trouble walking or clumsiness -seizures -changes in pupils such as one larger than the other -lasting or recurrent dizziness -blood or fluid coming from the nose or ears - large bumps or bruises on areas other than the forehead - especially in infants a good rule of thumb is when in doubt, get it checked out!

Allergy/infection: You are describing symptoms that could be due to allergy or to a sinus infection. Taking an anti-histamine like Claritin, (loratadine) Allegra or Zyrtec (not all 3) will help allergy a lot, and maybe help sinus infection a little. If you have a fever, chills and/or sweats then sinus infection is more likely. If symptoms don't clear up with an anti-histamine, then you should see a doctor.

The left side of mt neck and face are swollen. How can I tell if my lymphnodes are swollen? And can they cause facial swelling? Lymphoma?

LN DDx: The differential diagnosis (ddx) or multiple possible causes of increased size of lymph nodes (ln) or lymphadenopathy is large. You should see a doctor to see if you have an infection. A cancer such as lymphoma is a possibility, but so are many other causes.
