Hi there,im writing to figure out what the cause might be,when i gently press down on my skin i get cracklin popping noises AND i can actually feeling the crackling/popping. I am not experiancing this problem anywhere else on my body EXCEPT in the area that is directly below my temple(top of the side of my jaw)and the ear opening. My husband was able to feel the crackling/popping when he pressed down also. I've never had this kind of issue before and im super stumped not to mention a tad bit freaked out! I must also mention that i've had an absessed tooth that i took antibiotics for about a week ago. Could i have some kind of liquid under my skin,but how did it get there? Anyways sorry about the description of my symptoms,i'm just stumped as to how to best describe it except that it feels as it i'm popping little bubbles under my skin.
Thank you very much ahead of time for any help i may recieve. Have a great evening!
