Question: I'm having extreme anxiety about this. My partner of four years who is a 25 year old male has developed a very large limp right in the middle of his forehead. There is a lump growing on the left side of his nose as well. The lump on his forehead gets bigger by the hour our it seems. He also has swollen lymph nodes under his ears. I started on his left side but is now popping up on his right side.

Brief Answer:
It sounds like an Abscess which might require drainage.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
I can understand your concern. What you describe sounds like an abscess of the face and forehead. It must have happened in the past 2 or 3 days. He could be having fever also. It would be helpful if you could send a photo.
I suggest you see a Doctor preferably an ENT specialist who can examine you. Antibiotics should be started like Tab Augmenting 625 mg thrice a day and also Tab Combiflam or Diclofenac twice a day. But as there is swelling he might require surgical evacuation of the pus by a small surgery.
Please don't delay and get him evaluated soonest. Meanwhile you should start antibiotics and send us a photo.
Take care and do let me know if there are any further queries.
