URI: The nasal congestion does cause the mouth breathing.. The lymph nodes i suppose are not he neck and most likely are reactive lymph nodes. 90% of URI are viral, but if he is having fever or chills, it is best to have him see his pediatrician for proper diagnosis. You can give antihistamine for the congestion and fluid to avoid drying.
