Pain below the ear and neck, difficulty in swallowing. Reason?

Hi, I have a pain which started 2 days ago when I woke up, and it has not lifted at all. It's a pain just below my right ear going up to the top of the ear, and in parts of the neck. The pain is worsened when I turn my head to the right, or the left, worse when turned to the right. The pain also comes when I swallow, although not as bad.

Hi, Thanks for using HCM,

It may be due to infection or muscle sprain. If any redness, swelling in neck (lymph nodes), fever it suggest any infection.If infection do salt water gargle, take antibiotic tablet and anti inflamatory drug and local warm compression. Can apply diclofenac gel locally. Consult your doctor and get examined and treated.Wish you good health.
