Swollen glands in neck in kids

Common Questions and Answers about Swollen glands in neck in kids


Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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?
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn I recently went to the doctor for some lumps I found in my neck. I found about 4 or 5 on the right side below my ear. My doctor discovered I also had swollen nodes under my arms and in my groin on both sides. About a year ago I had a CT scan that showed an enlarged spleen. What do you think of these findings? I am very worried. I feel fine and just completed 2 weeks of antibiotics for a sinus infection.
113932 tn?1189759424 Hi all, I finished treatment on July 27 and the last two weeks I am noticing swollen lymph glands on my neck and underarms. Has anyone else experienced this as an after-effect of treatment. Also, has anyone here ever gotten a one-month-after-treatment PCR? Patience is not a virtue for me.
Avatar f tn We are two days into the mystery rash syndrome. Today she is poorly - swollen glands and sore throat, very dehydrated. She had a headache last week but that has gone. She is a student - there has been a case of bacterial meninitis in her block recently but she is showing no sign of stiff neck or ongoing headache. She does not have a significantly raised temperature. Should I just keep closely monitoring or rush to bemused and off duty local GP?
349463 tn?1333575176 I've been feeling really run down the last few days and today woke up with one side of my neck swollen. The whole side of of my neck is these hard swollen lumps all the way up to under my chin. I'm 99% sure it's swollen glands, but I've never had anything like this before. Only on one side and from my collar bone to my jaw bone. My throat doesn't really hurt and my only other symptoms would be feeling a little tired and waking up with a little blister on my tounge.
Avatar n tn she is not diabetic she is constantly catching every bug going all her neck glands are swollen and one under her chin these have been swollen for four weeks now she has a mouth ulcer in her cheek urine culture no infection present but wbc waiting now to see a peadrictrian but i am really concerned for her health as she is just really run down and seems to be getting worse and the blood on urine sample has increased from a trace to a large amount should i take her back to gp or just ride this ou
Avatar m tn Hi. Children are more susceptible to infections unlike adults because of an immature immune system. It is possible that your child acquires the infection at school, when she is exposed to a classmate who has an infection. As long as there is a source of infection, your child can easily acquire it. She was diagnosed to have a streptococcal infection after her throat culture. That is easily treated with an antibiotic where streptococcus is sensitive.
Avatar m tn (As you might know, that has no added iodine, and neither does the salt in processed foods. In fact, there has been an increase in babies born with thyroid problems since sea salt became popular and mothers were misled that 'natural' is always better.) Anyway, since giving iodine worked (and since she received no treatment for autoimmune thyroiditis), we can assume the goiter arose from thyroid deficiency. The thyroid does not always go down completely after that, btw.
Avatar m tn hi there, I would not be that worry, once they started school , all kind of sickness will happen because it is a different enviroment . after a year or so she would be fine. my daughter had the same when she started school the first year but she is doing much better now. it is normal for the first years just because they are mixing with different kids ands yes they will get sick.
578743 tn?1218557817 This is a growing problem in our society as a whole, but alarmingly so in our kids. We've got to make sure they are taking in real food and are physically active . Anything with "partially hydrogenated", or "modified, " you pick the oil... palm, coconut, cotton seed, peanut, sunflower….any of them, they shouldn't be ingested.
Avatar n tn Just to say I've had this a few times now, once ended up in A&E due to swollen uvulea(think thats the name) where they popped in some hydrocortisone and gave me piriton type tabs. They seemed baffled but noted my punchbag-like uvulea with some surprise and diagnosed allergic reaction. I was in a friend's spare bed on that occasion so mebbe. Just had another scary one (at home), seems to happen on waking during a doze.
Avatar m tn Now my glands are swollen in the neck and getting slight fevers and it will not go away. She seems to practice safe sex since she was adamant using condom for sex but I did not engage.I am concerned she is a party girl and messes with tourists and may be infected and infected me. I have made contact on her status and she says she is clean and has been tested as part of her work permit, I believe the last 12 months. The symptoms I have are weird and will not clear up.
1139187 tn?1355710247 I am having horrible throat pain and trouble swallowing. My glands are really swollen. I am hyperthyroid though =(. I can't wait to get my stupid thyroid out. I hope you feel better.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar n tn As all this was going on I was clearing my throat all the time of really thick flem and then one day my throat felt swollen, not even really sore ( LIKE MY HEAD ) but swollen. Sure enough it was sinus drainage and the glands in my throat were swollen. I wasn't getting over a cold, and my sinuses were never stuffy, they were always clear. A dr. put me on a nasal steroid spray and slowly the pressure in my head that i had for months started to ease up.
Avatar f tn I had this as well, and had it removed before I had my kids. Funny, though, when my milk came in after each pregnancy, this area was swollen again! However, when I stopped the "engorged" stage, it went back down. It was a great surgery for me, b/c the lump rubbed against my bra when my arm was down, and did cause some discomfort.
Avatar m tn As of right now $$ wise and all that probably is out of the question. All I am trying to do is figure something out here. The swollen nodes in my neck, the headaches, chest pain, MRI images that I question were looked at enough or not..... I am just trying NOT to have something sneak up and kill me. Especially for the sake of my 18 month old daughter.
Avatar n tn 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.
1768944 tn?1313911483 I feel sluggish and fatigued ALL the time when they are swollen I feel pressure in my head and almost like my ears are plugged while glands are swollen I get random bouts of nausea but have never actually vomited I have chronic neck and back pain I have had low grade fevers off and on I feel like I have become weaker, its hard to lift things that usually are not an issue for me I get dizzy/confused feeling sometimes I get pounding in my head when I stand up or stretch I have had gastrointestin
Avatar n tn I have recently been experiencing the taste of blood in my mouth. When I spit out, I am seeing traces of blood. I had chest x-rays that came out clear. I saw an ear nose throat doctor who checked my nose and throat and saw nothing except excess mucous. He prescribed a nasal spray for me. I have been using it for about two weeks now, and am still seeing and tasting the blood. I am also experiencing some pressure in my throat. Any suggestions on who to see or what could be going on?
Avatar n tn I tend to get swollen from time to time so I bought the football icepack from walmart you put in your lunch pack. They have all kinds but that shape is perfect that that spot. good luck with the sweeling. I agree, latex allergy, probaly that spermicide. That stuff can really cause some problems with allergies. Good luck.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn I wasn't too concerned, as I have three older children and always check their glands when I think they are getting sick. Swollen nodes in themselves don't concern me. The time they had stayed swollen, however, sent up some red flags. As he was sitting on my lap, watching TV I was just rubbing his shoulder and noticed a swollen node. Then I found a few in his neck, and one on the back of his head, about an inch from the bottom of his hairline.
Avatar f tn I have noticed, for a few months that i used to get a small pimple like thing, white, just one on right hand sideof tonsil, at the start i thought it was just a infection, but no pain just that when it got a bit big i would feel uncomforable when I swallowa as if there was something there, so i would put my finger in and squueze it out and a hard white piece would come out just like the head of the pimple, Last few weeks noticed a small raised up thing like a size of a pea, hard, just on th
Avatar n tn I've heard that the either the Atlanteans or possibly the Lemurians had holes on the top of their heads to allow their Pineal and Pituitary glands to receive more cosmic energy or prana. I have noticed an increase in my awareness and abilities to astral travel. I live a very healthy life. I write and make movies and I feel that my mental clarity and memory is still very good in my life if not better than it's ever been before.
1372123 tn?1280753511 It is because of the chronic irritation in this site could have caused the enlargement of the lingual tonsils and hence the glands in the neck, or lingual thyroid was noticed accidentally during your dental checkup Rather than speculating things, please do consult your ENT/Oral Specialist. Any more doubts you are welcome.
