See your PMD: Sounds like you need to see your doctor and have yourself checked. There are a lot of things that can cause lymph nodes enlargement, however when you also have other symptoms like night sweats, weight loss ot others-nausea etc- you can't just take antibiotic like septra (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim). You really need to know what is going on. Start by seeing your primary care doctor-who will examine and order test and referrals, .
