Thank you so much, Newport. Before I saw your message I felt some activity in the hard masses on the earlobes and cheeks, especially on my right side. The one on the right cheek felt hot and larger than usual. Then I saw this message. I kept getting this hot and burning sensation on and off for several hours. However, I felt less of this on the left side, and even less on the stomach. The masses are still there, but I guess it may take some time before they are gone. I am wondering how long it would take to get rid of them. Thannks again.
