Inflammed : Reactive lymph nodes are usually swollen and or tender from allergy or infection. After treatment for the primary cause of the reaction, the reactive lymph nodes resolve and the swelling and or tenderness resolves.

Yes: Always drink moderately and responsibly. Although Allegra (fexofenadine) usually does not produce sedation be cautious with alcohol when taking Allegra (fexofenadine) for allergic rhinitis.
A 47-year-old member asked:

No: This condition is congenital and usually self limited in children. Occasionally, the condition produces complicated airway obstruction early in infancy that may require intervention by an ENT or pediatric surgeon. Most often, supportive symptomatic care of upper airway colds will suffice until the soft cartilage in the child's airway firms up and matures. Afterwards, the airway resistence resolves.
