Reaction...: Your lymph nodes( glands) get swollen as a response of the infection. It means your body is fighting with what is causing your symptoms. If you are feeling better already it is most likely your symptoms should resolve in a few days. However, your glands may stay enlarged for a little bit while your body gets rid of what is seems to be a virus.
