Swollen Glands By Ear And Rash
Can a long-term wisdom tooth eruption cause symptoms like swollen lymph nodes under chin, behind ear and enlarged gland right under the tongue?
Yes, It is infection: Wisdom teeth usually appear between the ages of 16 and 25. However, sometimes they appear many years later. If you are experiencing pain, swollen lymph nodes and it does not go away or if you find it difficult to open your mouth, you should see a dentist for evaluation, x-ray and wisdom teeth removal.See 2 more doctor answers
Possibly: Autoimmune thyroiditis (hashimoto's) can be associated with diffuse enlargement of lymph nodes, including those behind the ears. Other systemic symptoms may occur.

I have equally sized bumps behind both my ears. I'm wondering if they are swollen glands or just my mastoid bones?
Reoccuring infections in body, everyday a new problem, post nasal dip from 10 months and now swollen glands behind ear. Please suggest?
Anxity can only harm: Human body is pretty strong and is rarely affected by frequent infections....yet you can get paranoid about it and become anxious in which case you will start imagining all sort of bad things. Just assume that your body is fairly healthy and will remain so, provided you quit worrying about minor things like postnasal drip which is often an imaginary ailment...nothing serious here.
My son is 15 months old and about 2 months ago he had roseola w/swollen glands behind ear they are still there and one in groin. Is this common?
Yes: The glands will always be there but will usually peak in size within a week of the infection and slowly decrease in size over a 3-4 wks. If another process stimulates them they may not shrink completely. I rarely have to do anything with glands in these locations.
I've got swollen glands in my neck I'm taking flucloxacillin for it as I one of my ears are blocked I'm worried its due to an abscess that IV had?
ENT issue: You would need to complete your antibiotic therapy and if there is no improvement check with an ENT doctor. Abscesses could take a while to resolve.
My 3 yr old has a fever, swollen glands on neck and behind ears, stiff neck and is lethargic. What is the diagnosis?
Woke up w/swollen glands infront/behind my ears and directly under my jaw. I don't have any other symptoms or pain. Drank a lot the evening prior.
Needs to be checked: It is not related to your drinking but swollen glands need to be checked. The glands can be enlarged due to infection or other causes.

Why have I got severe ear pain in my left ear & swollen glands in my neck on the same side? I smoke a pipe and drink in excess. I am a 53yr old man.
Possibly cancer: I don't want to worry you, and I'm a cancer doctor, so I always think about cancer. But this is something you must have checked, and the sooner the better! Tobacco users are at risk for head and neck cancers, which can cause ear pain and swollen lymph nodes on the same side. It's also possible you have a viral infection. With cancer, the lymph nodes are often painless and hard. Get seen soon!
My left ear is closed, swollen glands in my neck, left side, blocked nose and coughing. What could I use?
Recurring swollen lump under left armpit. Painful not red. In last, had swollen glands behind ear for months at a time. Worried about cancer.?
Not likely for you: Your age argues against this being a cancer. It is suspicious for some kind of infection or inflammatory problem. Consider seeing a surgeon or dermatologist to discuss the possibility of hidradenitis.
Red itchy skin & ears & swollen glands in neck since moving to new place. Gets worse after I've been in laundry room. Using same detergents. Help!
Allergic reaction: We can develop allergies even if we haven't changed the type of products we use. I would start by changing my laundry detergent to a hypoallergenic one. If that doesn't work, you can use a hypoallergenic soap like neutrogena. If you are no better after these changes, you need to see a dermatologist or allergist.
Hi. I've got no appetite got stiff neck I think swollen glands n ears are sore? My throat looks red but isn't hurting just my neck and gland are sore
Need evaluation: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor as your symptoms warrant an investigation about the cause.See 1 more doctor answer
