Hello there...there are two things to could be a viral infection and the second one could be because of major apthous ulcerations...tantum oral rinses can be used to avoid pain...this is a topical anesthetic solution that would give you transient pain relief... use the solution everyday atleast 3- 4times a day and gargle the solution for 1- 2 minutes...Dont dilute the solution..... You can use this 15 minutes before consuming anything orally....
Submandibular salivary gland is the only salivary gland present below the jaw especially in the posterior aspect... salivary glands are swollen in various conditions... there are lymph nodes as well that swell in case of any inflammation or infections in the oral cavity...dont get confused for these swellings as salivary gland swelling...Clinical evaluation is mandatory before i could confirm your diagnosis..... Consult a Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon only for expert opinion and management....
