This could be a cold sore. It could also be an infected skin lesion such as impetigo. This is a staph infection of the skin. It generally has a yellow crust on it.
The tingling is likely nerve irritation from your cold sore which is herpes.
i already know that the cold sore is a cold sore i have them often but they have never come with the other symptoms. whatever it is that i have, is causing pain on the right side of my face, right side of my throat and also swelling on the right side of my face?
those symptoms are most likely from the lesion on your chin. the pain and swelling is consistent with drainage of the infection through the lymphatic system on this side if the lesion is infected with staph then this makes sense.
