Hi there.
I read your history & your clinical description of the lesion along the jaw line, the ear issues & the boyfriends' HPV status.
At the outset, let me assure you the latter has no bearing on this present predicament.
Second, the XXXXXXX along the jawline may be an old scar due to some old nondescripit injury & may have found a small keloid or hypertrophic scar that can be secondarily inflamed & responsible for the earache as a result of secondary lymph node involvement.Alternatively the ear & XXXXXXX may be different issues.
I suggest taking a simple oral anti-inflammatory agent eg ibuprofen that can be bought over the counter taken as a 400mg dose three times/day over a 48 hr period. If still no respite, then it is time to XXXXXXX your family doctor at ground0.
Good Luck & all the best. Take care. Cheers!

I m using a Lidoderm patch for (light) shoulder pain. I had a rotator cuff tear surgery in Oct. 2013. At times I get pain in the shoulder (while exercising and/or playing tennis). Is Lidoderm the same as ibuprofen except it is in a patch form? Thanks for replying.

Hi, it has been a week now since I donated blood and there is terrible bruising along the side and right above where they placed the needle. There is also a stiff tightening pain as I move my arm that goes from my elbow up towards my shoulder. I ve taken aspirin and ibuprofen occasionally to try and ease the pain but nothing has helped. I even tried icing it on and off the first few days after, which was recommended by our American Red Cross donation center. Should I be concerned?
