If the parotid swelling is on the opposite side from the "tooth abscess", the parotid swelling is probably not related to the abscess, and should be separately evaluated by an ENT physician. If on the same side, it may just be an adjunct to the abscessed tooth, and not the parotid gland at all.

Abscessed infected. Infection spreads unless controlled. Please see Oral Surgeon or Endodontist as soon as possible.
