Allergies lymph glands

Common Questions and Answers about Allergies lymph glands


Avatar f tn About 8 months ago I discovered that my dog had swollen glands in her neck. I went to two different vets who took a sample of the cells on THREE different occassions and each time is came up "Suspicious" but not definative. After 1 day of antibiotics the swelling went down by about 75% however never fully reduced. I notice again that the size has increased and she is not eating as normal and less active.
1683208 tn?1305124695 you have lymph glands in the same area on either side of your neck below your jaw. if it is your lymph glands one or both can be swollen for several different reasons, most commonly when you have allergies but also when you are sick or have an infection. DO NOT push or poke and glands on any part of your body!
Avatar n tn your glands will go down in time its not something serious its just a matter of time drink lots of water and keep it on the low, try not to shout.
Avatar f tn Hello, Groin lumps and armpit lump are swollen lymph nodes. Lymph nodes are small (1-2cm) and bean-shaped nodes.Lymphadenopathy (swollen lymph nodes) is usually caused by a viral or bacterial infection. Other causes include allergic reactions, arthritis, cancer, metabolic diseases, and an overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism). In sinusitis, the glands in the neck are most likely to swell—a common response to a cold or upper respiratory infection or allergies.
Avatar n tn There are bilateral small nodules within both parotid glands which are probably lymph nodes. There is a preauricular lymph node on the left measuring 1.0 cm in size. The submandibular glands are normal. There are no orbital masses. The included portion of the brain parenchyma is normal. There is no abnormality seen within the frontal nor ethmoid sinuses. The 3rd ENT is thinking I have allergy issues and possibly atypical migraines?
Avatar n tn Hi, What other symptoms are present? The most common cause of swollen glands or lymph nodes is infection. This may include infection in the head such as in the ear, tonsils, gums or teeth and even the skin in these parts or other conditions such as autoimmune conditions and even malignancy. Pain medications may help provide relief. However, If it persists, diagnostic tests such as blood tests and direct physical examination may need to be done.
Avatar m tn 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?
Avatar n tn It seems like my worst days are when my lymph nodes are the most swollen....some days the glands are sooooo swollen I feel stiffness and tightness when I move my head or look down. Thanks for your input.
Avatar f tn believe me you wont kiss someone's mouth if you see it's BLEEDING that blood is actively pouring out. If kissing transmit HIV then billions of people are now infected with HIV easily. YOu must remember that HIV is not an easy virus to transmit, it requires perfect circumstances and situation for you to get it. Saliva is a sterile fluid " free from all germs" and it helps in.activate the virus. By all these things, there's no transmission from kissing.
Avatar n tn I do have two dogs that sometimes lay on my sofas but this did not start until a few years ago and I have not had pet allergies before. Can allergies develop later in life? My concern is, if this is not allergies, what is it?
Avatar m tn I don't know how you can avoid seeing an ENT. There's a possibility that there's an underlying infection like a middle ear infection which spread to the mastoid bone causing these knots/lumps, which infection could spread even further. Other possibilities include abscesses from infected cysts(started as swollen hair follicles) and swollen lymph nodes, benign or malignant growths and dermatitis. I can't suggest any DIY treatment, since the nature of these lumps is unknown.
Avatar f tn my dos glands are swollen in her neck, in her groin. and behind her front legs . she is breathing funny , but still eating just not moving around much.what can i do at home to help her , or do i need to get to a vet soon.
Avatar f tn About 2 weeks ago the pressure seemed to get worse along with painful swelling in all my glands from the shoulders up, and worsening post nasal drip. Now it hurts to even open my jaw and the antibiotics they gave me I can't take due to complecations with my UC. Any Suggestions???
279234 tn?1363105249 I got a sore throat the other day...I think my allergies were acting up because I was wheezing as well. The funny thing about it was, my throat was only sore on one side. My glands even felt sore but just on the right side. The left side had no pain when I swallowed. This has happened many times before. I was just wondering if anyone has experienced anything similar?
Avatar n tn I actually for years have had a swollen lymph node on the side of my neck on the right side directly below the back of my jaw line. No pain or anything unless pressing hard. I actually have never really noticed it its normally pretty small and obsolete but i woke up this morning and it was a little harder and more noticeable which i think it has just swelled up a little.
1626225 tn?1306459118 I have sharp pains like lighting on the left side of my head from bottom of my neck where the glands are to behind the ear and some times they are so sharp that it leaves the area kind of numb. They last about 2 seconds. My neck is very tender and the doctor thinks that it might be related to my acid reflux problems. can anyone help me.
Avatar f tn Hi, So it is finally confirmed that it is infectious mononucleosis. The fluid in the ears and the swollen lymph glands may have caused the headaches. Strep throat also may cause severe headaches due to the pain and inflammation in the throat. Infectious mononucleosis tends to affect the younger population groups. But this is not unlikely for older patients. Keep us posted for anything.
Avatar m tn - Swollen armpit glands (not individual nodes, but a general swollen feeling) for 4 weeks, starting 23 days post exposure. Is this the normal timeline for acture HIV symptoms, and is this a common one? - Could this be related to another STD anyones aware of? - Does the Oraquick (gum swab) test provide the 80-85% accuracy at 4 weeks some people seem to be claiming, or does this figure only apply to blood tests?
Avatar n tn I have touched a rat today, but just touched its face, not picked it up or anything so I dont think its allergies. I had a minor sore throat for the past two days and the feeling of slightly swollen lymph nodes. Anything you can tell me to help out would be much appreciated!
Avatar f tn Hey there, I have posted about this before but I am getting concerned about it now. I have a 5.9/left and 5.8/RT side diffuse goiter and low TSH. I am on Synthroid to help shrink the goiter. Since, about a month ago, i have noticed that my lymph node in my neck is swollen. It wasn't swollen before the meds and it it is tender but not painful. It is getting bigger at first I thought it was just from allergies but I am starting to worry.
Avatar m tn A little more than 2 weeks ago I had vaginal sex with a random female partner I met at a college party. During intercourse, the condom slipped off and I probably engaged in a few minutes of unprotected sex. I have since have been very worried about the possibility of having HIV or another STD. I have been feeling lightheaded have had a mild pain in my throat and recently developed a mild headache. I also think my lymph glands are a little enlarged but I'm not 100 percent...
Avatar m tn About a month ago I got a little under the weather. I had a persistent cough that just wouldn't go away for about 2 weeks. Attributed to a combination of Cold/bad allergies. Then roughly a week and a half ago I developed a sore throat. I got a Z-pak and did the 5 days and that was 5 days ago. I still have the sore throat. My glands aren't swollen and neither are my lymph nodes. I'm not running a fever and there are no white spots/markings of any kind.
