Infection?

I got a flu almost a month from now. I got better after 2 weeks.But the fever keeps coming back.. almost reaching 39 degrees. I got a fight with my boyfriend.He slapped and strangled me..My lips was abraded. Then after a few days my lips keeps on swelling and it was so painful I couldn't even eat, the swell keeps on spreading and there was a pus on it already. My throat is also swelling. I don't know what is this.. am sick for almost a month now and I still have a fever...
Your answers will truly be appreciated.Thank you...

It sounds to me like you got over the flu but you got an infection from the guy slapping you. It may be a bad infection because it might have made your lip hit your tooth and you could have bacteria from the mouth or teeth in the wound. The fever and pus also sound like a wound infection. You need to see your doctor for antibiotics and/or he needs to care for the wound.

thanks..I did..The hospital endorsed me to an ENT specialist...she prescribed antibiotic and gargle solution... but am having a tingling sensation in my tongue all the time. Is it a sign of infection?

No the tingling is probably a side effect of the medication. Make sure you use the medication as prescribed. If it doesn't get better you may need pill form antibiotics.
take care,

I hope you think about maybe switching to a boyfriend that doesn't slap you. You are better than that.

You are right...
   He keeps doing that every time he got mad... He even broke my nose and face. One time he hit my head with a mobile phone (really hard) and the area in my head still hurts. I don't know what to do...

Sorry that is happening to you. There are women's issues forums on here that discusses things like that. But I'll write to you on the message board.
take care,
