What causes swelling on right side of the face under the jaw bone?
Seems like blockage in the duct of submandibular salivary gland..
Welcome to HEALTHCARE MAGIC..
I have gone through your query and can understand your concerns..
As per your complain swelling under the right side of jaw bone that occurs during eating anything and goes down within an hour after the eating is done seems to be most probably due to blockage in the duct of the submandibular salivary gland..
It is one of the major salivary glands present under the jaw..
The duct can get blocked either due to foreign body impaction that is any food particle or can be due to formation of Crystalline stones within the ducts of the glands..
Th stones are formed from the minerals present in the saliva..
Stimulating the duct with the q-tip can help in removal of superficial stone or foreign body but for this you should know the exact location of the obstructing element..
I would therefore suggest you to consult an Oral Physician and get evaluated and a thorough clinical evaluation and investigations like x ray or MRI scan can help in ruling out the exact location of the obstruction and removal can be done accordingly..
As of now you should drink plenty of water and chew sugar free chewing gums as at times superficial obstructions tend to flush out along with the flow of saliva..
Any further queries are welcome..
Hope your query is solved..
Thanks and regards..
