Hi--is it tender? Any ear pain or fever? This just suddenly occurred?

tender to chew no fever 36 temperature all good

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
OK Paul. Nothing to panic about but you need to see a doctor about it. Most likely you have a middle ear infection and the gland is reacting to that. The other possibility would be an infected sebaceous cyst. Either way you need some antibiotics to take care of it

great would that tie in with sinus headaches we have all had ???? here at work on a very rural location im thinking rag weed ???

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
It can also be associated with a sinus infection but this isn't an allergic reaction like with rag weed. Let me know how it goes and please remember to rate my service to you Paul
