Cold sore on tongue caused a swollen lymph node under jaw. No longer painful but lymph node stayed and it wont go down. Is the lymph node a problem?

Not necessarily: You could watch and wait. If the lymph gland doubles in size, becomes painful, ulcerates, or other nodes become enlarged, you should see a doctor. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

With no fever and no fatigue, I wonder if you have little pockets (crypts) in your tonsils that can trap food/debris and become irritated. Very enlarged tonsils can interfere with breathing - which is non-negotiable! ...Read more
