How long should a blocked salivary gland take to resolve?
might be due to stones
I have gone through your query
This is commonly due to stones, I would have suggested for sucking on sugar-free lemon drops and drinking a lot of water, which cause an increase in saliva production. This can sometimes be enough to force the stone out of the duct. But result depends on how large the stone is and also where is it located.
If this is not helping, i would suggest you to visit your doctor or dentist, can try to push it out by pressing on both sides of the duct. Stones that are large or located deep within your duct might need to be surgically removed.
As you have mentioned that it is still present, an examination by the doctor is needed for further management.
This provisional advice provided by me is based entirely on the input provided to me. I would suggest examination by the doctor.
I hope this suggestion might be of some help to you.
