Reactive lymph node: It sounds like you are treating an infection. The location appears unclear, but seems to suggest the ear, nose and throat region. The lymph node is reactive and should regress per treatment. The only suggestion I have would be to take either Ibuprofen or Prednisone, both anti-inflammatory, both with somewhat similar side effect profile. Hydration and rest are critical.
