Hi thanks for your question.
The abscess formation is due to infection of the partoid gland.Chronic sialadenitis means chronic (for long time) infection of salivery glands.Pain could be due surgical incision or some amount of inflammation due to abscess which can be taken care by pain killers.
Hope this answers your question.
