Usually, you will have some swelling of the infected gland, maybe a bad taste and pain in the area.
Fevers are uncommon. Often the swelling of the gland will smaller and larger around mealtimes.

Swelling and tenderness on pressing the saliva gland or pus coming from the gland opening are signs of saliva gland infection.
