Hi.... Parotitis is inflammation of the parotid salivary gland: it can be acute, chronic, or chronic with acute exacerbations. .... Viral parotitis is more common worldwide than bacterial parotitis.... Adequate hydration and antimicrobial therapy are the main stay of treatment. Antibiotics should be administered intravenously in acute bacterial parotitis after obtaining blood cultures.... Consult Ent specialist.....
