I have a hard knot on my cheek near my nose that has seems to continue to grow it hurts it's painful and I believe it is a tooth or root abscess. I went to the ER but they literally did nothing. I only made it into triage, they did their normal checkup stuff then one guy in there looked at it told me he was giving me penicillin and sending me home. I never saw the doctor. The knot has since moved, from the original location, not only is the bump still there but has gone down my cheek under my cheekbone down into my jaw and into my neck and ear somebody please help the penicillin isn't doing any good and neither is the tramadol he gave me for pain. Sadly I know narcotics don't help with tooth pain. But find something else that can work. I mean come-on.
Hi, you need further proper medical treatment and the ER may not be the best place to start. See your doctor who may refer you to another doctor or specialist and then possibly a surgical internist. Complain about the issue rather than focus on the pain; a doctor may be more prepared to listen with an open mind.
Listen to Stephen. The ER did all they can do. ... penicillin. They can't do a biopsy or surgery in the ER.
Why do you think it's a tooth?
It started up by the nose. The fact that it's spreading is of concern because it's close to the brain and vital structures in the neck.
It may not be an infection so you wouldn't be feeling any better from the Penicillin.
Go today to a Primary who can determine which specialist you need.
