I don't have a way to do that right now. its like two lumps. one on each side. if you grab your earlobes on both sides and then moved your hands forward towards your nose until they touch your cheeks. that's where it is swollen. I can feel a lump on either side in the same spots

A simple photograph from your cell phone will be adequate.

Hard to tell cause of my beard
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Do those help?

Yes.This appears to be bilateral infection of the Parotid gland or Parotitis.This usually occurs due to mumps which is a viral infection.It is unusual in adults as almost everybody is vaccinated against it during childhood.

What should I do to make it get better. And is it contagious?

This is also known to occur with influenza virus.Yes,if it is mumps or influenza it will be contagious.There is no specific therapy,but generalised therapy as for viral fever will help.It is a self limiting disease,will probably take about a week to settle down.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
