Parotitis, mild swelling of parotid gland, jaw area, severe one-sided chills and sweat, difficulty in speaking. Taken antibiotics and orange juice. Appropriate treatment?

Hello Dr. Ramesh M.Cachharajani, as you said I took ultrasound of the Parotid gland , and the result is mild swelling of the parotid glands, and no calculi or abnormality.. but still i am have mild swelling around the jaw area and mild pain and severe one-sided (left) chills and sweat.. Doctor pls help me out of what to do now?? Hi I am 32 yrs old male; I am suffering from parotitis ( mumps ) for the past 45 days. One month back I went to a doctor with Jaw pain and swelling, he said I got parotitis and sunmandibular adenitis and prescribed me heavy antibiotics, which made me very weak; and then I consulted another doctor and he said I should not take antibiotics as mumps is a virus infection and since I took heavy antibiotics I got weak, so he asked me to stop the antibiotics and take complete rest and have orange juice. I used to have orange juice regularly (4-5 times per day), but i didnt get cured. Then when I was browsing 2-1/2 weeks back i found citrus fruit will aggravate parotitis (mumps)... and i stopped that also; now I feel the swelling of the salivary glands and pain, and one sided chills and very hard to speak...can anyone give me suggesstions of what to do? thanks in advance...
