What are the underlying causes for painful aching in the area of the salivary glands and acidic burning feeling from secretions?

What's it possibly mean if a person is feeling painful aching (no swelling/discoloration) in the area of the salivary glands (parotid in particular/rear of mandible/jaw) and experiences an abnormally sharp acidic burning feeling from their secretions when eating especially when first starting to eat but continuing throughout the chewing process?

Hi welcome to health care magic forum.
It appears that you have a pharyngitis, or a periodontitis, or a wisdom tooth, or caries tooth.
I advise you to consult as dentist, for diagnosis and treatment. You may need to have an intra oral x ray for diagnosis.
I usually prescribe to my patient with such symptoms ofloxacin, ornidazole, diclofenac sodium, and paracetamol.
Take more of green leafy vegetables, pulses, sprouts, and protein rich foods to have resistance against such pains,and infections.
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery.Thank you.
