HI

ITS DR GUPTA

AS FOR AS THE DISEASE WHICH CAN I GUESS WITH YOUR HISTORY IS

1. OTTITIS EXTERNA ( INFLAMMATION OF EXTERNAL EAR) WITH CERVICAL LYMPHADENOPATHY

2. PAROTITIS





TREATMENT :

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY DRUG ( PARACETMOL ORALLY)

ANTIBIOTIC ( AMOXY -CLAV) TO CONTROL INFECTION .

PLENTY OF FLUID

LOCAL THERAPY IF OTTITIS EXTERNA IS PRESENT - OTOGESIC EAR DROP THIS WILL REDUCE PAIN SENSATION
