Patient : I am a CNA in a nursing home where some painting is being done without adequate ventilation. In the last 48 hrs I have had a headache and a painful lump the diameter of a golfball has appeared on my neck just below my right ear and my ear feels like it is retaining fluid. I have used Tylenol and topical pain cream but have had no relief. Could it all be related and what should I do?
