Brief Answer:
Inflammatory swelling (Gland)

Detailed Answer:
Hi Mam,
Thank you for your query
I have gone through your query; it suggests that you are probably suffering from the inflammatory swelling (Glands under your jaw) i.e. natural, response of inflammation.
You are on the good treatment, don’t worry about the glands because it takes about 3 weeks to completely subside.
To rule out the other disease (if symptoms does not improve after three days of the treatment), you may go for
1. Serum amylase level
2. Ultrasound neck
3. If necessary, FNAC of the glands

If you have any doubt, I will be available for your query.
Wish you good health
