    Chipmunk Cheeks!!

    Hey I have been bulimic for a few years and recently I have been getting chipmunk cheeks! Does anyone know how to get rid of them or what can help?!?

    Hi Racet,

    Everyone is different. Some peoples glands shrink as soon as they stop purging. With others the glands stay swollen weeks after they stop.

    May I ask how you are feeling otherwise?

    Thanks! They're already starting to go down it just became very noticeable and I freaked out. I've been okay besides the chubby cheeks, just really tired lately. I've been having a rough few days very stressed with school and finals, but I'm hopefully starting treatment in a few weeks when summer break starts!
