Thank you so much for your reply.
It is likely that you are experiencing the symptom of palpebral conjunctival/eyelid inflammatory lesion. Given the presence of swollen salivary gland, this could represent Sarcoidosis
. Sarcoidosis is a multisystem granulomatous disease of unknown etiology that can affect almost every organ in the body, particularly the lungs, skin, eyes, and thoracic lymph nodes. A definitive diagnosis of sarcoidosis requires that a biopsy be performed. A specimen can be obtained from any affected ocular structure, including conjunctiva, lacrimal gland, eyelid skin, and orbit
. Among them, conjunctival biopsy has been suggested as a sensible and safe procedure for confirming suspected sarcoidosis. The salivary gland would also be evaluated at the same time. In addition blood test for ACE and calcium
levels will help in making the diagnosis. This can be treated with local excision biopsy and oral prednisone treatment. Other conditions that need to be considered include chalazion - which can be resolved with excision. I suggest that your request for these consideration by your doctor.
