I began with the flu 3 wee ago, developed bronchitis
Parotid gland swelling
Thanks for the question.
The swelling that you are complaining about is parotid gland, one of the salivary glands that produces taste. There could be a possibility of lymph node swelling as well.
It is common find such things in general practice if one is suffering from long duration viral syndrome that the glands are swollen.
Hot fomentation every 4 hours, antibiotics, anti fever and anti inflammatory NSAIDs are all the usual choices during this time. Drink more fluids, rest and stay indoors during this hour.
Let me know if you have any specific questions for me.
