Does acne cause swollen lymph nodes

Common Questions and Answers about Does acne cause swollen lymph nodes


Avatar n tn After asking around, I found out they were swollen lymph nodes. They have been swollen since. And since then, I've had swollen glands around my collarbone, in and around my armpits, and around my groin. Its on both sides of my body, and some of the nodes are quite large. Anytime I notice a new one, its because its quite tender to the touch, and sometimes even general movement (especially in the armpit).
Avatar n tn Of all causes of lymphadenopathy (enlarged lymph nodes), HIV is pretty uncommon. But if you're uncertain whether your lymph nodes are enlarged, you should see a health care provider. Although you clearly didn't get HIV from that particular exposure, it sounds like you have a pretty high risk lifestyle. I urge you to never have sex with another guy unless you know for sure he is HIV negative; and always use condoms. 2) Your description sounds like a pimple, just as you suspect.
Avatar f tn Hello, I'm just wondering what could cause 2 lymph nodes to increase and decrease in size in the same day? This has been going on for several months where both my lymph nodes will get to be about the size of a walnut and then shrink back down to the size of a bean. It's always a little inflamed but when they inflame they inflame together in both forearms. They also look a little grey. Right under my skin I can see some greyness...
Avatar m tn Swollen lymph nodes can happen for so many reasons. It sounds like you are in generally good health so consider a visit to the doctor for an annual physical exam for the new year. It'll give your piece of mind and you won't have to live in fear anymore.
Avatar n tn I really do think that the stress and alcohol combined was the cause of these swollen glands. But this does not mean that your lymph nodes are swelling for the same reason. The most common reason for lymph nodes to swell is fighting off infection, so it could be that you drank too much and the alcohol compromised your immune system, causing your lymph nodes to swell in order to fight something play it safe, see your doc. P.S. I am not a medical professional!
Avatar n tn my 15 year old grandson had flu like fever and a rash that covered his back and stomach .Following that the lymph nodes were also swollen they are sore to the extent he canot use his arm as he is very athletic this is killing him they gave him a steroid shot.We were wondering how long this painfull swelling will persist?
Avatar f tn Birth control meds are commonly known to have side effects of both headaches, and swollen lymph nodes. On top of that, most antibiotics very commonly cause enlarged lymph nodes. 4. Despite it being somewhat hard, if this node is even slightly moveable, this would almost guarantee it to not be any form of cancer. And on top of that, you lack any of the typical symptoms of cancer. 5. The fact that the node fluctuates in size at all would also indicate that this is not a cancer.
Avatar m tn I have not had a fever just this constant fight with congestion, sore throat, and swollen lymph nodes. I actually do not have a regular health care person. I have friend that is a Doctor who suggested the TB test, but I thought that was way off. So, how long should I expect to fight this viral infection? Anything besides vitimins that I can do since it isn't HIV.
Avatar f tn I've noticed lately that both my Epitrochlear lymph nodes are swollen in my arm. At first I thought it was a cyst because I get cysts often, but I'm now realizing they're both in the same place on both arms and are in the same location of the Epitrochlear lymph nodes. I was checking myself for other inflamed nodes and I found another one under my right armpit. I'm not sick or anything. I have been really tired lately and just plain old exhausted... but that's kind of normal for me.
Avatar n tn If you have it that long and have no other symptoms I woud just leave it alone. Don't touch it because that will cause it to enlarge or stay enlarged. Lymph nodes can be very sensitive.
Avatar f tn I know you have said swollen lymph nodes due to an infection feel non-tender. I have seen in a past post, you had described swollen lymph nodes in the groin area can be noticed by running your fingers along the fold between the groin and the legs. If i close my armpit (putting my arm just along side me), it's exposed, so i guess that's the back of my arm and not my underarm. Can you please explain how a swollen lymph node in that region or the underarm would feel due to an infection? 2.
1154462 tn?1327437979 I have a call in to my PDoc so we'll see what he says, he did warn me to watch out for swollen lymph nodes although i'm just on anti-convulsant and anti-seizure meds.this is my 2nd sick day so I just want no more!!!
698356 tn?1240154327 I started synthroid (not currently taking) and within a few days all the lymph nodes in my neck and my thyroid were swollen and sore. I had an ultrasound that revealed an enlarged heterogeneous thyroid. My family doctor sent me to an endocrinologist. She is retesting my thyroid hormones and looking for antibodies. I've been tested for food allergies (including celiac) and everything came back negative. My endocrinologist is retesting me for celiac.
Avatar f tn In addition, for the past year and a half, I have been having swollen lymph does under both my arms and groin area. Sometimes they get really big and burst. And I have this horrible pimple breakout on my buttocks. Lately, I've been having hard lumps under my waist on my pubic area. I've shaved a few times before. I don't have any pimples on my face... Could these stuff all be because of that? Or maybe hormones? Or do I have something? Someone, anyone, please help???
Avatar m tn the rest of my skin has normal acne or is clear and then every few weeks one of these really swollen zits appears on my chin and they cannot be popped (although I hadn't tried the needle thing). This is a new situation for me as well, so I was looking up how to handle it. Just to let you know, I've tried using Differin for several months and it hasn't worked at all.
Avatar n tn Lymphadenopathy (swollen lymph nodes) is usually caused by a viral or bacterial infection along with other numerous causes. Treatment is usually cold compresses, over the counter anti-inflammatory analgesics(pain killers) like acetaminophen or ibuprofen, antibiotics if cause of infection is suspected to be a bacteria and surgical drainage if there is any abscess formation.
Avatar m tn Any infection can cause lymph nodes to swell, and they don't have to swell evenly. Usually, when you have a cold, the infection is symmetrical and so are they lymph nodes, but this isn't always the case. As for your infection spreading, I think you'd feel worse if that were the case, but the ENT should be able to tell you more definitively.
Avatar f tn You might want to add the antithyroglobulin antibodies (TGab) to your list of tests and while you're at it, get, also Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies (TPOab). These tests will determine if you have Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, which is an autoimmune disease in which the body sees the thyroid as foreign and produces antibodies to destroy it.
Avatar m tn It could be lymph nodes but that is a lot of lymph nodes to be swollen by your description. I don't think so. Where does it hurt in the abdomen? Is the the lower right? The rest is hard to say without further testing. Have you been checked for diabetes? The other thing would be arthritis. But you are young and a man so it is less likely to come on like that. Have you been bitten by a tick? Hope this helps some.
291885 tn?1404896807 I've been searching for answers for 7 years to my health issues and thought I had a dx but got thrown for a loop when my new doctor suggested Lyme or a bacterial infection/co-infection. He is Lyme Literate so is in his area of expertise and the more I research I think he's on the right track but am just unsure since I don't have the typical symptoms. I'm going to be getting the Igenex test soon to confirm but would appreciate any help in case the test is inclusive on where to go from there.
Avatar n tn one side really seems a bit more swollen than the other. I have chest acne too, which is new and it is even spreading down to my breasts one more than the other. All these symptoms are driving me crazy and making me really worried. But, I did do the no caffeine and no chocolate thing and have been taking Evening Primrose oil that I had read about and my pain (thank goodness!) is gone but the swelling is back. I'm 38 and I'm wondering if this is what starts happening to women my age.
948349 tn?1294383837 One interesting thing I found out, is that when people are vitamin D deficient, they may have swollen lymph nodes... Surprise surprise... my lymph nodes are no longer swollen for the first time in 10 years!!!!! lol at least I feel somewhat better. I was vitamin D deficient, and I know for sure I will be supplementing this for the rest of my life. I also found that vitamin D absorption is increased with vitamin A... not decreased. SKep, where did you find out that information?
Avatar n tn hi i have the same thing iy is a large bumpi under the skin on my vagina lip it hurys so much and i dont think its a ingrown hair. it is a hard lump and the rest of my right vagina lip is swollen. does anyone know what this could be? any suggestions?
Avatar f tn For roughly the last 2 months I have had chronic loose stools, dry mouth , white coated tongue, oily skin, tender lymph nodes in armpits, more acne than normal on face/back / chest and weight loss. The weight loss is now slowly improving and coming back to normal, but the other issues still remain. My hands and lips also seem very dry. Hence I can relate to a lot of your symptoms.
Avatar n tn Last night I applied a warm washcloth to it for about 30 minutes, which made it feel better. Could this be a swollen lymph node, or maybe an ingrown hair? It is located in the area where I shave daily. Any advice would be very appreciated!
Avatar n tn Also, a yeast infection can cause what seems like a bad case of acne wherever the infection is. The bumps many of you have been experiencing can just be cause by over active yeast in your system. Try eating more yogurt with active cultures in it and see your doctor. Everyone, even infants get thrush infections.
Avatar f tn Not knowing what is wrong with you is worse than the diagnosis, in my opinion. One of my other symptoms is chronic enlarged lymph nodes. My doctor told me over the phone that they are so big that he wants to do a lymphectomy. "I hate to talk to you about this over the phone, but I think we are going to have to investigate the possibility of cancer.
Avatar m tn I also haven't noticed any swelling of lymph nodes, except a couple days ago I noticed one near the edge of my armpit was a little swollen up, maybe the size of a pea, but it was literally an inch away from where I had been bitten by a tick. I have never been the most energetic person in the world, but I do feel as though I feel a little fatigue, or should I say grogginess/sleepiness... I don't feel physically exhausted but I do yawn all the time.
Avatar m tn Sound sensitivity Head pressure around temples and eyes pressure sometimes Stabbing sensations sometimes at temples Undigested food in stools Hard pellet stools/ mucus in stools Carbs/Sugar/Caffeine make drunk feeling worse Random itching over skin but with no rash Heavy feeling eyes/Sometimes feel very sleepy after food Feel at best first thing in the morning Sneezing/runny nose Post nasal drip (constant feeling of build up in throat) Sore tip of tongue, sometimes middle/back area
