In brief: Try this

If it is very mild then a combination of hot moist soaks to the gland, vigorous hydration with water and sugar free lemon candy can be of benefit in hopefully stimulating salivary flow and alleviating whatever obstruction is causing problems with the gland.
Anything more than just a mild irritation, though, should be treated with antibiotics.
