Feeling of bruised throat when swallowing. Neck pain below jawline. Should I be concerned? Have sinus problems

My throat feels bruised when i swallow on one side. It s been going on for about a week or so.. Sometimes it s worse than others but definitely seems to be worse in the morning. I don t know if it s related or not but my neck hurt just under my jawline about 2 weeks ago. Should I be concerned? I have a lot of sinus issues.

Dentist 's  Response

Thanks for writing to us.

Neck pain below jaw line can either be due to throat infection,tonsillitis or due to abscess developed as a result of deep caries or periodontal infection.

I would advice you to get a thorough clinical evaluation by a dentist as well as an E N T Specialist.

Infected tooth has to be either root canal treated or extracted.

Complete course of antibiotics as well as analgesics has to be administered.

Gargle frequently with lukewarm saline.

Hope this helps.
