MD visit: Being "very worried" on the internet isn't going to help diagnose or treat this 4 year old. You need to see a physician. Healthtap and other resources can provide useful information but cannot diagnose and treat individuals with a broad spectrum of undiagnosed signs or symptoms.

Bug bites ? shots?: Glandular swelling can be a non specific response to vaccines or systemic viral illnesses, even if there are no other outward signs of the illness. Bug bites or skin rashes can also lead to regional node swelling.
