Answer

Chronic sialadenitis, in contrast, is typically less painful and is associated with recurrent enlargement of the gland (often following meals) typically without erythema. The chronic form of the disease is associated with conditions linked to decreased salivary flow, rather than dehydration. These conditions include calculi, salivary stasis, and a change in the fluid and electrolyte composition of the gland.
