Last Thursday I had a seborrheic keratosis frozen off my face near my lower jaw..left ear..by saturday..my ear near that site started to hurt and my glands became swollen. I went back to the dermatologist who said the these symptoms were not related to the mole freezing. but she put me on zpac as a precautionary..I then was advised to go to my primary care physician who said I had an ear infection. I never get sick like this in the summer. The site where the mole was frozen is itchy..so I gather it's a sign of healing..
Could the pa at the dermatologist's office have given it too much liguid nitrogen which may be causing these othere problems? I have had moles removed from my face before and never have had this reaction.those moles were surgically removed however.
