Need more: What you described is suggestive of allergic inflammation, however , it is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor. Wish you good health!

Missing context: Reactive lymph nodes suggest a non specific inflammation, infectious or otherwise. The ordering physician has the best view of your overall situation.
