Some people with Sjogren's syndrome also experience Swollen salivary glands — particularly the set located behind your jaw and in front of your ears...consult your treating doctors they will do the needful... Bellow advices might help you Increase your fluid intake. Drinking lots of fluids, particularly water, helps to reduce dry mouth. Stimulate saliva flow. Sugarless gum or hard candies can boost saliva flow. Because Sjogren's syndrome increases your risk of dental cavities, limit sweets, especially between meals. Lemon juice in water also can help stimulate saliva flow. Try artificial saliva. Saliva replacement products often work better than plain water because they contain a lubricant that helps your mouth stay moist longer. These products may come as a spray or lozenge. Use nasal saline spray. A nasal saline spray can help moisturize and clear nasal passages so you can breathe freely through your nose. A dry, stuffy nose can increase mouth breathing.
