Hi there- my entire left side from my neck to the top of my forehead is swollen. I have acne like sores on my face oozing and not healing. Started with the Parotid gland being swollen as well as my tonsils. No sore throat or cough though. I've been on adderall xr30 for the last year and have lost 40 lbs (no appetite or thirst). Was put on Erithromyacin 4 days ago, but my eye which hadn't been swollen yesterday is puffy and almost swollen shut. Doc figured it wasn't mumps, but how can I be sure other than bloodwork? Any imput would be greatly appreciated!

  • There are a lot of possibilities when you enter "edema" with "pustules." I would ask to see a dermatologist.
