No Dexa,it is cellulitis,even discontinue Antacids,start with serratiopetadase/trypsin/Chymotripsin with Aceclofenac or Diclofenac.

Eliminate any dental cause - there could be high probability of decayed teeth - high chances of lower wisdom tooth or lower molar may be decayed An appointment with a dentist is a must !

may insect bite followed by infection. antibiotic and antiinflammatory are enough.
