Thank you.

Is there any swelling, redness, tenderness etc?

Do you feel poorly in any other way?

I haven’t heard back from you, so I will provide a general answer using the (limited) information available if I may.

I understand that you have been experiencing significant pain below the right ear for 2 days.

I think the main conditions to consider her are an infection to either the ear or the salivary gland in this region (though dental pain/infection is also a possibility). It should be fairly straightforward to determine the exact cause with a face-to-face medical examination and if confirmed, these issues will normally respond promptly to appropriate antibiotic treatment. I would suggest arranging an appointment with your doctor today to organise this.

I hope this is helpful.

Is there anything else you would like to ask me?
