Swollen glands in neck child

Common Questions and Answers about Swollen glands in neck child

swollen

The child's symptoms begin with sore throat (which can be mild), fever, headache, abdominal pain, and swollen glands in the neck. After 1-2 days of these symptoms, the child develops a rash on the body that is red and has a sandpaper texture. After 7-14 days, the rash sloughs off. Oral antibiotics are needed in this case to prevent the complication of rheumatic fever.
i assume swollen glands in the neck means inflamed lymph nodes? our 6 yr. old was seen today for a fever and sore throat complaint. the ped. said she has a throat infection and swollen glands and prescribed meds. she did check other areas of her body for glands (at least that is what i think she was feeling for). about 7 weeks ago she had the same thing (tho the whole family passed around a fever/infection). should we be overly concerned that she has been sick like this twice in two months?
There is no pain when I touch it what so ever, I told my father about this and he said I had them as a child swollen glands appearing out of no where with no pain, could this be history repeating its self? Or could this be the first sign of a HIV infection? Please reply back Doc.
It can be very upsetting as a parent to follow your child's swollen glands. But I can assure you that in most cases, swollen glands represent a normal, healthy body response to either infection or inflammation. Lypmh glands (or nodes) are the body's filter system which become enlarged when there is any kind of an insult - like a cold or other illness, or, an insect bite or other local irritation.
Home Care If you have swollen lymph nodes, the focus is on treating the underlying cause. Soreness in lymph glands usually disappears in a couple of days without treatment, but the nodes may not return to normal size for several weeks after the infection has cleared. Generally, if glands are painful, it is because they swell rapidly in the early stages of fighting an infection.
I always have and was wondering if anyone else out there that has these swollen nodes in neck also have problems with their teeth and also wondering if problems with teeth (infections and such) could cause the nodes in the back of the neck swell up. Also, the glands in the front of my neck have always been large... these problems I've experienced have gone on for years... So, I'm hoping its nothing serious because, if it is, and I have it for years.... what chance would I have?
Although it seems to be under control with levoxyl, she has recurrig swollen neck glands, is pale and always looks tired. Can the blood tests be missing something. You can see the gland sticking out of her neck. Could this be thyroid related?

Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! Pain and swelling in neck in a child could be swollen glands, a cyst or an abscess. It would be best to consult a pediatrician first and then if he feels maybe referred to an ENT. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Now for the past 3 weeks she has been very poorly. Random fevers again, leg pain again, very pale and huge swollen lymph glands on her neck and groin. We were told she had a virus. Then she had really bad mouth sores which again was diagnosed as a virus. We went to see a different doctor and she gave us antibiotics which did seem to help for a couple of days but then the fever returned.

I AM A 51 YEAR OLD FEMALE THAT HAVE HAD SWELLING IN MY SUBMANDIBULAR SALIVARY GLANDS(MOSTLY LEFT SIDE)FOR APPROXIMATELY 3 YEARS. MY GLANDS SWELLS WHENEVER I SLEEP AND SOMETIMES WHEN I VIGOROUSLY CHEW ON SOMETHING. I VISITED THE EAR,NOSE THROAT DOCTOR AND WAS PRETTY MUCH TOLD THAT IT IS SOMETHING I HAVE TO LIVE WITH AND TO MASSAGE THE GLAND,AND SUCK ON LEMON DROPS WHEN SWELLING OCCUR.
She has dizziness, headache, very sore throat and her glands in her neck are swollen. She is somewhat sluggish, but not what I would expect with mono. Her blood counts all came back in the normal range. I am just worried about her. Any thoughts or suggestions would be very helpful!
Bells I have a three year old son that also has swollen glands and lumps on his neck. The doctors have not been able to diagnose the cause. He is frequently sick with fever and gagging and they tell me to let it run its course. They did run blood tests to eliminate mono and I also think as Rachel that you should insist that they run some blood tests to be sure.
The latest was a consultant paediatrician who said he thought it was swollen glands because the glands in her neck were slightly swollen and she had a cold a week before the pain started. The pain is not getting any better (in fact it's been worse for the last 3 days) and it is constant. Does anyone know how long we can expect this to go on for? and is it really swollen glands or something more sinister.
MY 11 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER HAS A PAINFUL VERY SWOLLEN LYMPH NODE IN HER ARMPIT. THIS IS THE THIRD TIME IN THE PAST YEAR THAT SHE HAS HAD THIS OCCUR IN THE SAME SPOT. SHE HAS A COUPLE OF SMALL GLANDS OUT IN HER PELVIC AREA ABOUT THE SIZE OF A LIMA BEAN BUT THE PEDIATRICIAN IS NOT CONCERNED ABOUT THOSE. THE GLAND UNDER HER ARM IS ENORMOUS BUT NOT RED OR INFLAMED. SHE HAS NO VISIBLE CUTS OR SORES ANYWHERE ON HER THAT I CAN FIND.
About 4 months ago my right ear started feeling full, then I noticed swollen glands on that side of my neck. My tonsil looks a little swollen on that side but no white spots. Many bouts with tonsillites as a child. I have had post nasal drip with constant clearing of my throat and dry cough for years. Within the 4 months nothing has gotten better or worse. I tried 5 days of antibiotics which I dont know if they did anything.
I woke up one morning and my jaw was clicking like crazy. All my glands in my face and neck were swollen. My jaw muscles were swollen too, which is what was causing my jaw to click since it couldn't open and close correctly. Stop stressing. The stress will make it worse. Also, you may have allergies. Take some antihistamine and see if anything subsides. Also the white patches that look like tonsillitis, I was told by the eye ear and nose doc that everyone has patches.
She does complain about swollen glands which I took her to the doctor last week. He felt that all she needed was Allegra which she finally took today. She is at the age where it's hard dealing with the issue of diabetes but she is independent with her pump and can do it all on her own(which I am proud). She does a wonderful job with her diabetes and exercises even when not playing sports. I'm not sure if its dehydration, potassium issues, muscle spasm, etc.
I am in my 60's and have only just started to have either a swollen face or, on the last two occasions, a swollen tongue, which all started in September. The first time I had a swollen tongue was 4 weeks ago and I ended up in hospital. I had already taken Piriton but it didn't help. At the hospital they gave me Prednisolone which worked very quickly and I was packed off home with another 2 days supply.
It seems to get hard and be in the shape of a ball on the right side and the left labia gets hard. Its also swollen and full of fluid in the loose skin on the lower end of the vaginal opening. I describe it as feeling like you have a blister. It stings and burns. I have had this happen 3-4 times since dating my bf. This is the first guy its ever happened with. The first time was scary. My vagina was huge, clit huge, libia huge, I was shocked at this thing protruding from my legs.
Dear Lisa, For your own peace of mind, and for your son's sake, I urge you to take him to a BETTER doctor, in a larger town, near you. I think your question about whether to worry about the swollen gland could be answered QUICKLY and ACCURATELY if a BETTER DOCTOR could SEE the swollen gland in person, not over the internet. Sincerely, Concerned lady http://cantbreathesuspectvcd.
I had cardio workup in January and evrything was near perfect. My lymph glands have been swollen for months. I do have an Asymptomatic Brain Tumor in left back occipital area, but it's not been a problem at all, and has been there for nearly 20 years neurosurgeon says. My BP goes up & down like a rollercoaster, I can feel it, and know when it's happening. That's the part that bothers me ! If I make it thro the wkend, I wll be going to my neurosurgeon who's keeping eye on Ependymoma.
Hi. While the swollen neck glands, the sore throat and her general malaise can be attributed to an infection, there is a distinct possibility that this set of symptoms actually signify metastatic spread of the tumor to the lymph glands in her neck. She needs to be seen and treated by a cancer specialist. I do respect her decision on what kind of treatment she wants to receive, but from your post, it doesn't seem like the alternative treatment she is taking is working.
I have swollen gland (big size)left below my ear, so many small glands left side of the neck, at the time of starting it is painful after that without swollen remains.

If any one have any comment on this PLEASE ...
at the hospital comfirmed today that it is a swollen muscle in my armpit. I am not sure that sounds right, concidering that just four months ago, my Surgeon says that it was lymphnoids, and that we will make sure it does not grow. I have had this thing for more than a year, and is not getting smaller. I do get pain in my ribs, as well as my back and neck, also for the past month, I have been nautious, and get very dizzy. Every time I go to the doc.
I too have this noise in my neck but I now have what I can explain as a hollow sensation in my neck and back of skull. I don’t know what to do as my health is dwindling. I have been getting moving sensations under my skin, unable to walk for long periods of time without my muscles killing me. Then I just happened to realise the soft cartilage in me right ear around my eardrum had totally gone. Also my lip has started to fade.
Arm/face pain and neck stiffness may appear due to nerve irritation in the cervical (neck) spine because the nerves that supply the arm also start in the upper cervical spine. Mostly, this kind of pain aggravates after turning head and typically occurs in patients with herniation of cervical disc and in patients with marked arthritis of the upper cervical spine.
I have a three year old son who has the same symptoms as your children. He has swollen glands in his neck and has had them for about 1 1/2 years . The doctors have also told me that I shouldn't worry but they are very large. He only weighs 29 pounds and has various other medical problems.
