ganked this off a site

I like to use a cold wash cloth on my face to reduce the blotchiness and puffiness. And I do yoga neck exercises aswell which is good for your lymph nodes. Like try jutting your chin out like you have an underbite and stretching your neck forward and upward, and then give yourself a double chin. Do that 10 times and then make your head loose and do some neck rolls from side to side. These are good exercises to do anyway for your glands. I also massage my neck very gently and drink plenty of water.

I ganked this off a site too:
"Many natural remedies can also help you recover your face that much faster by taking better care and giving it the best condition for your own body to heal itself.

Gargling every day with rock-salt water (use warm water) can help to clear any minor infection, as the Iodine found in the rock salt will help to speed up this recovery process.

Nutritionally you can do a lot too:

. Eating Mackerel can reduce inflammation by the active release of prostaglandins (hormone like substance).
. Berries are a good source of vitamin C - which helps with any Thyroid glands problem due to the immune boosting abilities.
. Sea vegetables such as seaweed are a rich source of iodine, as is Salmon which also contains Omega-3 Fatty acids.
. Brazil nuts contain Selenium, which helps to maintain any endocrine systems including Parotid glands in your neck.
. Eating carrots can help to soothe the mucous membrane throughout the digestive tract, reducing irritation and inflammation. It is a very good to cleanse your overworked liver with toxins too.

Onion on the other hand counter acts fluid retention, and helps with Gout (swelling) in the neck region.

You can also flavor your food with a pinch of Saffron, as it has anti-inflammation properties, but also gives you a fantastic aroma and color to your dish.

Avoid foods such as coffee, cola, sugary foods, cabbage as well as eating salt (as opposed to gargling it) - as they hinder healing of the damaged tissue and slows recovery.

Natural interventions to treat your swollen glands due to purging, needs dedication and patience from your part! Avoid expecting over-night miracles, for the bulimia effects to wear off, as you accept your own personal responsibilities for weaning off purging. If you take better care of yourself, bulimia symptoms like swollen glands, sore throat, constant loss of voice and regular infection in this area will diminish with time and you will see a marked difference in the size and shape of your face!"
