In brief: Parotid stone

Make sure you are on antibiotics if there is swelling.
Also stay well hydrated (drink plenty water), take NSAIDs like Ibuprofen or Naproxen scheduled doses for 1-2 weeks, and encourage daily salivation to get the gland working - hard lemon candy or lemon wedges 3 times per day.

Agree with Dr. Zuzukin. And if that doesn't work, see an ENT surgeon for stone extraction.
