Brief Answer:
Upload the picture

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to HCM.
I have gone through your query. It is good to be cautious.

It is impossible to diagnose a swelling without examination, so it will be better if you can upload the photos of it to provide you with more specific advice.

Even though without examination, I feel you need not to worry much about it as doctors who have examined you have not found anything suspicious.

Get back to us with picture, I'll be glad to help you out.
Take care

Detailed Answer:
I have gone through picture. But I am not able to appreciate the swelling, kindly encircle the site and upload the pictures again.
From the pictures I don't see anything abnormal, so i think you should not worry, relax you are fine. But I would suggest you to maintain good oral hygiene.

Take care.

Hi- This morning I woke up with a sore throat and runny nose. I also had a swollen gland on the right side of my neck under my jaw. It s not sore, and feels hard to touch. Also during the day the swelling goes down occasionally (after a saline gargle etc.). Should I be worried about these symptoms? Or is this just a simple common cold?

I have been experiencing thick, bubbly, sticky saliva for many months now - following about two years of using hydrogen peroxide for a mouthwash. I ve seen two dentists and two oral surgeons; surgeons tested my salivary glands and concluded my saliva was normal. They could not diagnose my problem. Told me the saliva must thicken after it is released from the glands. and in my mouth...Both believed the hydrogen peroxide was not the cause. My only relief is when I m eating or chewing gum (xylotol). Is there any antidote, assuming it was the hydrogen peroxide that brought it on?
