Approximately 2 weeks ago I began experiencing pain in the bottom rear of my mouth. I thought it was a tooth problem so I went to a dentist, he prescribed antibiotics and advised it wasn't a tooth problem but possibly an obstructed salivary gland. After 2 days and no relief with a great deal of swelling and pain on one side of my face I went to oral surgeon who "milked" the salivary gland and prescribed different antibiotics. I have been on anitbiotics for a week and still have swelling and great deal of pain. Does anyone have similiar symptoms and can advise what I can do to control swelling, etc.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
I would suggest to have ultrasound neck and continue antibiotics. Discuss ultrasound report with your healthcare provider.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
