Can Chlamydia Cause Swollen Lymph Nodes
YES: It can cause a swollen gland in groin.
Chlamydia is a curable sexually transmitted infection that is caused by the bacteria chlamydia trachomatis. This bacteria infects mucous membranes of the urethra, vagina, cervix, anus, rectum, eyelid, and throat. Chlamydia may be asymptomatic but some patients experience pain or burning during urination, nausea, fever, vaginal discharge, ...Read more
Monitoring Centers: The lymphatic system absorbs and carries things too big to go into the arteries and veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. The lymph nodes "taste" the lymph to see if anything bad is there like bacteria, viruses, cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react.

Swollen lymph nodes: Apthous ulcers would not cause swollen lymph nodes but can occur in conjunction with another problem. The ulcers are thought to occur due to stress and the swollen lymph nodes can be a sign that you are fighting off something else. A visit to your physician is recommended in this case.
Maybe: Parinaud's oculoglandular syndrome, or conjunctivitis with swollen lymph node between the back of the cheek and ear ("pre-auricular) and under the jawbone ("submandibular") has many causes, with Cat-scratch disease being the most common. Many others exists, but viral is not considered very common. Please get an evaluation by a Cornea and External disease specialist.
No: I would consider other causes. See your doctor.See 1 more doctor answer
No: Cocaine or other drugs (even sniffed) would not do this. If you have a sore throat, that's probably the cause and both this and the enlarged nodes should clear pretty soon on their own. If not, and especially possible enlarged nodes persist more than 1-2 weeks, see a doctor and get it checked out.
Depends: It is unlikely that the cocaine in and of itself would cause lymph nodes to swell (lymphadenopathy); however, whatever other substances are within the administered drug could very well do so. Use of cocaine is incredibly dangerous, not only for the well known effects and addiction issues, but also because of the co-administered materials "cut" with this drug of abuse.
Hard to say: There are several possible cause of such symptoms. The best approach is to see your doctor for a complete exam. They may wish to get a ct scan depending on the results of the findings on exam.
Depends on severity: I presume you mean BaRber's itch or pseudofolliculitis: irritation of hair follicles due to shaving. It is not uncommon for this irritation to lead to inflammation or even low grade infection. At least mild swelling of lymph nodes could result from this. Stay well:)
