Reports are suggestive of Infection of parotid gland
I have worked through your attached query and reports in detail.
As per the attached reports, the involvement of parotid gland is clear. This condition is called Parotitis which mean inflammation of the parotid gland or in other words Infection of the parotid gland.
Parotid gland lies below the ear on either sides.
This condition require Antibiotic therapy for a short period of time.
I generally prescribe oral medications of Amoxicillin Clavulunate for 7 days along with Analgesics like Diclofenac sodium for 7 days to my patients with such symptoms.
This is not a dangerous condition and should promptly resolve with Infection.
Please check with your physician if he shares my view and if can prescribe these medications to your wife.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
