Swollen Saliva Gland
Whenever I eat certain foods my temple swells out and pressure is put on that side of my head the right side. I have to rub the area that is swollen, and sometimes that does not help to get it down. What do you recommend? My doctor gave me a perscription called cleocin, but it has not helped. Thank you.
