Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" lymph for 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. They shrink when all is well. Persistence requires evaluation. ...Read more

Time to see your Doc: If this is "just" your eczema, it sounds like it is not responding to current Rx, and you may require more intensive Rx (such as systemic (oral or injected) steroids, if you are already maxing out on topical steroids). However, I fear this may be more than just the eczema, such as a secondary infection, requiring additional therapy. In either case, you should see your primary or skin doctor. ...Read more
