I went to see an Ophthalmologist who said I had Conjunctivitis. I was prescribed eye drops and the problem subsided.

I am now having pain and irritation again, and have noticed there is an area which extends from next to my nose - under my eye - to about an inch above the corner of my mouth that seems to be swollen. It is hard, and is pretty thin. My eye seems to be dried out and is smaller than the other.

I thought it may have been from a tooth problem, but, I went to my dentist who seems to feel that this is not a concern. I do have some pain in the tooth, but not very much.

I also have a lump on the right side of my head just above my ear. This lump extends from near my temple to just above my ear and is area which is about 2 - 3 inches. I have gone to a doctor who mentioned Lymphadenopathy. I was prescribed Amoxyclillin, and it seemed to go down, but it is now bigger again. I have finished the antibiotics. I also have a lot of itching above the lump area.
