Full bottom lip covered in coldsores, really swollen too, now slight ear pain. Is this normal side affects? Should I go to the hospital?

Full bottom lip covered in coldsores, really swollen too, now slight ear pain. Is this normal side affects? Should I go to the hospital?

Primary care doctor: Oral antiviral drugs, such as acyclovir and several others, are effective in preventing outbreaks of cold sores, decreasing the severity of sores, and shortening the healing time of sores. Topical lip balms with anti-viral abilities can help, but not as much as the oral medications do. If a lip is looking worse instead of looking better, one can see her doctor for an antiviral prescription. ...Read more

I've been suffering from Left ear pain accompanied by swollen and painful left tonsil. I kissed a new partner a few days before could it be the reason?

Possible: Whenever we share body fluids there's always a chance of an infection being passed along. The ear pain is probably referred pain from the throat. Gargle warm salt water, eat soft cool foods and if not better in 5 days see MD - sooner if significant fever/vomiting/rash.

Hi I have been having a sore right tonsil an right ear pain on an off for a month now! My tonsil doesn't look swollen but it looks like there may be a?

Needs evaluation.: It is fairly common for something happening in the tonsil to manifest with ear pain. If the tonsil looks normal then I would be worried about a tumor within the tonsil. I know that I am probably over reacting but I always take very seriously simultaneous throat and ear pain. See ent. ...Read more

For the last two month alcohol consumption has been causing ear pain and swollen cervical nodes. One drink is all it takes.

For the last two month alcohol consumption has been causing ear pain and swollen cervical nodes. One drink is all it takes.

Not sure why: I asked one of my ENT colleagues if he had seen this, and he said he had not. I don't know why alcohol would do this, and it may actually be some kind of allergic reaction. It seems, though, that you keep trying to test it, so it would appear that drinking is important to you. I would see your pcp, and an ENT consultation (ears, nose&throat) might be necessary. Talk to your doctor about drinking. ...Read more

I have been diagnosed with swollen optic nerve going when I get results, shall I mention a numb/painful ear pain & back/sciatic pain affecting hips?

Surely: Best to have your current issues all addressed at same time, but realize that the optic nerve issue is unlikely to be caused by the same pathology resulting in your sciatica. However, if the eye issue is related to ms, there could be a painful symptom associated. Yes, tell your doctor, and let him/her decide. ...Read more

Yes!: If you are currently on antibiotics for the sinus infection, they will probably treat the ear infection too, but you may need a different antibiotic.
