Lymphadenitis: Bacterial lymphadenitis should resolve in a couple of weeks. Mycobacterium /fungal lymphadenitis will take longer from several weeks to months. If you have significant lymphadenopathy and does not resolve after antibiotic and remains bigger for 2 months- you should f/u with your md and gets further evaluation- to rule out other conditions like lymphoma, autoimmune disease etc.
