A 49-year-old male asked:

Spit gland infection: Any obstruction from stone to adhesions/scar to tumor to trauma. Also positive oral air pressure can blow bacteria from the mouth into the system. And very commonly dehydration or poor salivary flow from medications, radiation exposure, auto-immune diseases, and diet/life style.
A 64-year-old male asked:

Esophagus trauma: Observe. Use tylenol (acetaminophen) for discomfort if no liver problems. Cold soft diet may help any local swelling and tenderness. If there is fever or chest pain then i would seek emergent evaluation to make sure no tear occurred. Always let the physician doing the procedure know, because they would know how likely that could be from the difficulty of the procedure.

Loss of Smell: Topical zinc therapy has been shown to cause loss of smell, so don't let her do that. That being said, sinusitis is far more common. The swelling in the nose from sinus infection causes blockage and limit air flow to the olfactory nerve (smell nerve). Recommend evaluation by ENT and medical therapy.
