so ds1 who is 5 years old is saying that hes always itchy.  he has no hives or rashes, though i do suspect seasonal allergies for other reasons....


but yesterday his cheek swelled, below the ear down the jaw.  and i was thinking mumps, but our doctor is thinking salivary gland infection.  and so while i was reading about swollen cheeks today, i came across some threads where people have itching as well, and then i thought of my son always itching.  could this be a connection of something going on?


the swelling is much better today and he says it doesnt hurt as much, just below the jaw.  ive been giving him herbs and such for viral/bacterial which would make sense on the getting better.  he has had no fever throughout it all though. 


any thoughts?
