He extracted 1 tooth. About 2 1/2 weeks later, his lymph glands only in his neck became swollen and he found it difficult to eat his dry dog food . His other lymph glands are normal. We also noticed his gums were very "raw" and red looking at the point where they meet the teeth. Our vet of 30+ yearsdid a complete blood test and a CBC blood test for white & red count and all was normal and he has no abnormal temperature.
If there is recurrent enlargement of lymph nodes, you could check to see if any of the draining areas have any evidence of infection, like tonsils, the skin, tooth abscess or an ear infection. Infections like tuberculosis can cause lymph adenopathy. It amy not be realted to the rash.

I first saw my doctor in April with swollen glands in my neck I have seen him 3 times since, today being the most recient. The swollen glands NEVER go down. They don't always hurt but it is getting more frequent and severe. My doctor said today that we would try one more antibiotic and steroid pack for 1 week and for me to return for a follow-up that if the "KNOTS" are still there in one week he wants to do a scan.
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.
Treatment The underlying cause of the enlarged lymph nodes may be addressed. In case of infections, a course of antibiotics may suffix. If the glands appear very swollen, steroids may be prescribed. Dogs with swollen lymph glands due to lymphoma require removal of the lymph glands and if the cancer has metastasized, chemotherapy. Enlarged lympg glands are proof that the lymph glands are properly working.

I have had swollen glands in my neck for the past 6 months (at least). At first, I thought that my impacted wisdom teeth that were probably getting infected were the cause. I had them out in October and it is now the middle of March and my glands are still swollen. I went to my physician who ordered a cbc, thyroid, and mono tests and everything came back fine. She never could give me an explaination for these symptoms.
I went to the er on on sunday and my glands were swollen, the ones in my neck and but it's due to an infection caused by my teeth and my glands in my groin area were not swollen and never have been. she said the lump i though was a gland was perhaps a small hernia. And i've been so anxious for weeks and she examined me and said i was fine but in my mind i was already dead, but by the grace of GOD i'm fine and it was all in my mind even though i need to treat my oral infection.
My 5 year old dachshund has swollen glands in his neck. I checked in other areas and I don't feel anything swollen,just only in his neck. Aside from cancer, I want to know if there's any other infections or anything that he could have. He was checked in November as a check up at the Vet's appointment, and he was fine. But that was in november and it is March now, so there could be something wrong?

When I went to see the oral surgeon yesterday she said that the tooth was infected and that if it was not better in 24 hours with the antibiotics that she would numb it back up and cut a hole and let it drain.

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?
If you have swollen glands in the neck region only and ear ache then it could be due to tonsillitis, pharyngitis (infection of upper throat), infection in mouth, caries in tooth, internal ear infection, outer ear infection, eczema, dermatitis, dandruff, breast cancer, fungal infection, other cancers like lymphoma etc. If you had flu like symptoms initially then it could be due to infectious mononucleosis too. Please consult your PCP for primary examination followed by proper referral.
But now I have another very severe pain flare up in the sinus, jaw, neck witih swollen lymph nodes again. And this time, the Amoxil is only working 60% on my symptoms and I've been taking it 7 days now. Now I will be finding a new dentist, probably at the University dental school in my city. But really the question comes, since those Xrays showed nothing before, what can this really be?

I have been on 5 antibiotics in the past 3 months for what started out as a sinus infection that included swollen glands. The sinuses are now clear, but I have palpable swollen nodes on the right side that cause my jaw to ache, some ear pain, and a tooth to throb. (I thought I needed a root canal, but dental xrays showed a healthy tooth!) The "referred" pain is no fun.
last week i developed an abcsess in my tooth. my cheek became very swollen. the doctor said the infection from the abscess had passed from my tooth into my cheek. they put me on keeflex. within 24 hours about 60% of the swelling in my cheek had subsided. i am now on day 6 of a 10 days worth of the keeflex.
There is now a swollen knot on my cheek that extends down my neck to the left side of my throat. I have had severe discomfort but found more relief through Advil rather than the Percocet. The tooth was difficult for the oral surgeon to extract and I need a few stitches afterwards. When I look inside my mouth, I can see a yellow flecks around the area. It's hard to tell if it's food or a "scab". I don't want to remotely poke around to find out.
I would go to the ER due to the swelling going in to the glands in the neck. It sounds like she has celulitus. Do not put any heat on her face, you can use ice. I hope she feels better.

But no strep throat or any other infection has been identified. In fact, I've never suffered from a strep or tonsil infection in my life. Perhaps I'm in the wrong forum here; and if I am, would someone please guide me in the right direction? Thank you in advance for any help that can be sent my way.
