Lymph nodes: can carry on for 1 or 2 months after the initial infection that caused them to enlarge. I would not worry about these unless they continue to enlarge more or stay hard and painless for at least 4-5 months after. Try not to get sick again and monitor them weekly. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap.

Check with your doc: Not sure why you are having 2 antibiotics for that, and I think you need to talk to your doctor about it for further explanation
