derdeno lump very tender near the jaw bone sinus headache tender from behind the ear down under the jaw not noteisable swelling

Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 3 years ago.
Thank you for this reply

This indicates a sinus/ear infection.

The lump in the jaw is a lymph node that is swollen and tender from draining infection

You need a course of antibiotics for this.

Your GP or A and E can help.

You should take ibuprofen for this until then if you are allowed to take it
