I have two swollen lymph nodes one under the jaw and one in the left side of my neck. My doctor said it was due to bronchitis and a cold but after a week of antibiotics and two days of Algofren they havent subsided. Do you have a suggested course of action?

  • There is no need to worry. Swollen lymph nodes may be typical after a cold or an upper airway system infection. This enlargement may remain even for some months. In case you need more information you can visit an ENT doctor.
