DD has decided she has swollen cheeks - I've been saying that for a week!

So what causes swollen cheeks in a 17yo?

No tooth ache, possible sinus issue but they are swollen round her cheek bones rather than by her nose

Any suggestions?

Wouldn't that be her neck? & would she has a rash?

I can't remember I was 3 when I had it

Does anyone know any more about mumps or swollen cheeks?

Thanks DSS
