I have been experiencing pain in one of my salivary glands. I saw a doctor who felt it wasn't an issue, but said sometimes the gland can become painful. I had gotten rid of the pain once before by dry brushing the area with a soft bristled brush. He said to try that again, brushing with a soft child's brush from the gland towards the chin. I have been doing that daily for a minute each day and the pain was gone after 3 days. Initially I noticed a little increase in the pain right after the brushing, but the reduction in pain was apparent from the first day. The first time the pain appeared I also did oil pulling, which seemed to help. I would still see a doctor to be sure there isn't a mass or a more serious issue, but dry brushing really cleared up my pain in a jiffy.
