    What's your diagnosis?

    Besides the erythema this patient has lymphadenopathy in his neck. It all manifested after visiting the dentist.

    I'll post the correct answer in a day or three!

    Correct answer:

    Yes, it’s Ludwig’s angina.

    An infection of the submental, sublingual and submandibular spaces, most commonly after teeth extractions. Besides erythema, there’s lymphadenopathy in the patient’s neck; in some cases, this causes airway obstruction.
