It could be that the infection spread, or it could be completely unrelated. Infections are nothing to play with; I learned that at a young age
when I had a tooth infection but didn't tell my parents because I feared the dentist. It wound up spreading across my face...They did notice when the
left side of my face looked like an over-ripe tomato
Before antibiotics came about, the number one killer in the world was infection. A simple paper (parchment?) cut could turn into something that would
cost you your arm if not your life. Now we have antibiotics, and cheap antibiotics, but you need to take them for their life saving effects to take
place. If money or insurance is a problem, you can let the doc know. I had an infection that wasn't so present several years ago, but was unemployed
and didn't have health insurance. I had to pay $60 for a doctor's visit, but I let her know what the $ problem was, and she prescribed me
penicillin...Cost me $3.
Always take care of infections through a doctor's visit, especially if the infection is somewhere on your head.
