L. side nose & eye pain
An_248433 posted:
The left side of the bridge of my nose is extremely painful to the touch. My left eye is also painful near the bridge of my nose & very red on the surrounding tissue. I have no sinus issues at all. The left side of my lower jaw is also painful to the touch. Any suggestions what this might be? I have not been injured recently either.
Rod Moser, PA, PhD responded:
Remember that a "suggestion" is not a definitive diagnosis. Since I do not know anything about you, your medical history, or have any way of examining this extremely painful area, it would not be possible for me to offer the kind of answer that you deserve. Since this could be an infection (cellulitis?), it would be in your best interest to see a medical provider so that you can be properly examined and diagnosed
