I think I have thrush since taking strong antibiotics. I have a white tongue but have also developed a pea size lump on inside cheek with pus. Help!

I think I have thrush since taking strong antibiotics. I have a white tongue but have also developed a pea size lump on inside cheek with pus. Help!

See your doctor: Antibiotics can trigger yeast infections (thrush), but white or coated tongue isn't necessarily due to yeast, and yeast is not a likely cause of a "lump" with pus in the mouth. I doubt these problems are serious and probably will clear up on their own not too long after finishing the antibiotics. If they continue or the lump gets larger or sore, contact the doctor who prescribed the antibiotics. ...Read more

I have a small lump the size of a pea underneath my right but cheek it's quite hard and is attached to the skin any idea what it could be?

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. However, if there are no symptoms and it is not a cosmetic issue, you may wait and watch. If the lesion doubles in size or additional lesions appear, it would be prudent to see a doctor.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

I found a pea sized lump on the back of my 17 month old daughters head and im very concerned.

I found a pea sized lump on the back of my 17 month old daughters head and im very concerned.

Reactive lymphnode: There are around 3 or less occipital lymph nodes found at the back of the head. They take in lymph fluid to purify it of harmful cells or particles. The lymph that passes through them is the one that has gone around the scalp. Since this is a tiny pealike, rubbery and mobile lump and your toddler is doing well-it will spontaneously resolve over a few weeks. Large, red, tender ones need a check! ...Read more

I found a pea sized lump on the back my 1 year olds head. I can roll it a little like a cyst. It feels superficial to me, but should I be worried?

Probably lymph node: If there are no other symptoms, probably no need to be worried. Has there been a scratch or rash on the child's head or neck? Often these lumps turn out to be enlarged lymph nodes, part of the immune system. However, there is always a small chance they could be a sign of something more serious, so have your doctor take a look if it does not go away in a week or two. ...Read more

Lymph node: There are many lymph nodes in the neck and back of the head that are often more noticeable because they are located where our fat pads don't hide them. If you feel around you should find several the size of a pea & sometimes bigger. They can increase to the size of a big peanut if stimulated by local factors, illness or vaccines. I would just monitor it. ...Read more

Good Luck ...Read more
