Lymph nodes: After such an infection I would give the reactive lymph glands a couple of weeks to lose their tenderness.

Worrisome signs would be growth of new glands, increasing size of one or more glands or appearance of new palpable lymph glands in other parts of the body. See your physician as needed. ...Read more
