I have a tender spot on the right side of my jaw between my ear and chin. It is tender to the touch. Anyone else experience this?

  • are you having any other symptoms? like a migraine or sore throat? it could be an allergic reaction to something in the air. like fur or dander. if you have cold like symptoms its probably a lymphoid fighting off infection. drink lots of water. id check with the doc if it gets bigger or causes problems breathing, swallowing. if you get a rash, go to the doc. get well soon!!
