Depends: Depends on the type of reaction. Swelling (angioedema) usually lasts 24-72 hours when it reaches maximum. Allergies can last for very long times if not treated. If unsure, the safest bet is to see your friendly allergist for advice and treatment.

Antibiotics plus: The first thing is to make sure it's just an infection and not a cyst or tumor. Infection can typically be treated with antibiotics initially. I usually request that patients use sugar free hard sour candies and hydrate aggressively. If this is unsuccessful, or if infection recurs immediately, the gland can be flushed.
