Took botox injections all over the face and neck immediately after dental cleaning, took dental block and cheek fillers, swollen face, lump in the jaw. What shoul I do?

I had my teeth cleaned and immediately afterwards I went to the plastic surgeons office were I got botox injections all over my face and neck then the plastic surgeon gave me a dental block and did some cheek filler with PMMA . It is now 10 days later and my face is still swollen and I have a walnut size lump on my left jaw line. I m taking 500 mg 4 x per day of penicillin . The lump in my jaw concerns me more than anything. I m very tired and depressed.

hello and welcome to hcm forum,
i would be glad to answer your query,
first of all , i would like to inform you that post -procedure swelling usually subside within 3-5 days.
but in your case it hasn't, therefore i recommend you to meet your cosmetic surgeon.
according to the history provided by you, lump along the jaw line is most probable due to botox, but i cannot confirm it until clinically checked.
also,you have not mentioned anything about pain or consistency of the lump.
do not worry, the lump will resolve in some time. but do not overdose yourself with antibiotics.
i recommend application of ice all over your face and visit your doctor soon.
i wish you good health,
take care.
