Hello Azmi, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Read the complaints experienced by your child, these complaints can be caused by:
Bacterial infection of the salivary glands
Inflammation of the lymph nodes
Even though you have gone for treatment on the second day, it is a good idea for your child to go to the doctor to re-evaluate his current condition and the treatment that has been given, whether or not additional therapy is needed.
In the meantime, the consumption of medicines given in accordance with his recommendations, especially for antibiotics, must still be consumed. No problem helping compress the swelling, but it is still advisable to give the medicine recommended by the doctor and also check your child's condition to the doctor again.
I hope this helps.
