I just felt a small swollen gland under the left side of my neck. I went to see an ENT quickly, I was at work when this happen. The doctor has told me I have submandibular gland Infection. I am to take this medicine for two week to cause the swelling to go down, it not he's going to do a CAT scan.
Have the both of you gotten better, your message are dated back to 2007, this is 2009.
