Thank you... When I pressed around the side of my jaw fluids come
Into my mouth why would that happen?
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 3 years ago.
In that area there is a gland called as the parotid gland that makes saliva.
when you press on the gland that makes saliva, some of it comes into the mouth.
So this is something normal and nothing to worry about.
