Causes Of Sore Lymph Nodes
Monitoring System: 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. ...Read more

Sudden ear pain that intensified in hours, loud ringing, fluid movement when pops causing icrutiating pain, sore neck, lymph nodes, mucus, just awful pain?
No: Swollen lymph nodes result from an infection. Canker sores are not due to infection. However, ulcers that look like canker sores may be due to a viral infection. Canker sores heal spontaneously in 7-10 days. If you have any sore that does not heal in 7-10 days, you need to have it examined. See your dentist. ...Read more

Mononucleosis: Infectious mononucleosis (mono) is often called the kissing disease. The virus that causes mono is transmitted through saliva, so you can get it through kissing, but you can also be exposed through a cough or sneeze, or by sharing a glass or food utensil with someone who has mono. However, mononucleosis isn't as contagious as some infections, such as the common cold. ...Read more
Can post nasal drip cause sore throat with swollen lymph nodes? What can I do to get the swollen down?
Strep vs. cold: The post nasal drip probably didn't cause the sore throat, but all these symptoms are probably attributable to a cold at best, strep throat at worst. Sore throat with swollen nodes, especially with cough, should be evaluated by a doctor for strep throat, because in that case one would require antibiotics, more than just simple cold remedies like chicken soup or tylenol (acetaminophen). Feel better! ...Read more

If you have a bad cold can the lymph nodes under your arm pits get swollen and/or sore? What are some things that can cause this, if not the cold?
Both axillary lymph nodes were very sore yesterday and now they are just very bruised. I have a head cold. Would that cause the bruising?
No, that's unusual: This may be something more than a simple head cold. I'd suggest seeing your family doctor about this. Especially if you have had recent weight loss, fever, night sweats, sore throat, fatigue, decreased appetite, menstrual changes or other constitutional symptoms, even if they were subtle before. Easy bruising is also a concern, especially if it is new. Please see your doc ASAP. Feel better soon! ...Read more
