my baby swollen cheek (PIC) ... "UPDATE"... (lymph node)
Hi ladies, my baby is 8 months old and last night when he woke up from his nap his right cheek was super swollen,, we took him to the doctor this morning and doctor said he doesn't know whats causing the swelling but he thinks its infection in his glands,, he give us antibiotics , doctor told us to bring him back on monday and we should see a difference by tomorrow but im still freaking out , its getting bigger and more swollen .. my baby is acting happy and normal and hes eating great ,, have your children ever experience swollen glands??
update:: so i took my baby to the er, it started getting worse, they drew blood out and it showed it was a virus and it was getting worse so they transfer my baby to phoenix children hospital that same night, its the worse feeling ever ,, 3 days with antibiotics and 2 rounds of steroids for the inflammation took most of the swelling away, the doctor finally decided there was no need for surgery to drain everything out that was a big relief, this morning it was 95% gone so they send us home with antibiotics for 10 days twice a day,, but as soon as we went home it started again, its mostly hard no swelling yet, tomorrow morning we have a doctor appoint with hes pediatrician ,, we hoping it goes way with the antibiotics at home i dont want to take my baby back its hard seeing your baby with ivs and cables everywhere. " ill try to update again"
