Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) may not be a right choice for a swollen lymph node. It is a good choice for a skin infection, but yours appears to be related to the lymph node. I'd call the prescribing physician and report your symptoms. ...Read more

Parotid gland?: Pain and swelling along the jawline and below the ear sounds to me like it could be due to the parotid salivary gland, which is right there. Could be many things wrong with the gland, from infection to sjogren's syndrome to a salivary gland stone. If it's due to the gland, it'll probably be worse right after you eat, since that's when the gland is stimulated to contract and release saliva. ...Read more
