Swollen Glands And Canker Sores
Are swollen glands common with canker sores? Could I have an infection? I have had a huge canker sore on my cheek now I have a small ones on my tounge, lip, and back near my wisdom tooth and my glands are swollen and feels better after I brush.
Canker sores: Are the most common oral lesions. Individual ulcers typically last 1-2 weeks. Canker sores are usually accompanied by swollen lymph nodes. Try to keep adequate oral hygiene as possible. If concerned see your dentist after 10 days or visit today for laser immediate amelioration.See 3 more doctor answers
What should I do if I am continuously getting canker sores, sore throat, earache and swollen glands?
See your doctor-: Several types of viruses from the herpes family can potentially cause your condition, several of which can be treated with acyclovir. In addition, depending on risk factors, acute HIV infection is a consideration. This can be evaluated by doing some blood work. With these possibilities, get yourself checked out!See 1 more doctor answer
I have extreme fatigue, canker sore, sore throat, congestion, low rbc count, low mono count, high lymph count. No fever or swollen glands. Is it mono?
No, not necessarily: It can very well be any viral infection other than mono, would give the same picture, the low RBCs count isn't related, it can be due to anemia from any cause, in your case could just be heavy menses. Confer with the doctor who ordered the test or get a HealthTap prime consult if you wish. Other than that rest, fluids, salt water gargles, pain killers till that bout is over, wish you wellness
Can canker sores and stress cause swollen lymph nodes under mandible? Very stressed from college and canker sore. Health anxiety as well.
Probable: Although the cause of canker sores remain obscure, stress and perhaps even another viral illness may trigger them. Thus it is not difficult to imagine that swollen lymph glands can indeed occur. However if the glands are getting larger fast or lingering on for more than a month, check with your doctor.
Canker sores: Canker sores, known as aphthous stomatitis, can be caused by a virus, which may be why the lymph nodes in your neck are swollen. This is the body's response to infection. They can be very painful and take up to 10 days to resolve. A solution of benadryl (diphenhydramine) and viscous lidocaine (rinsed and spit out) will decrease the pain. Topical anesthetics may help as well. See your pharmacist.See 9 more doctor answers
Swollen/sore gums R side, two canker sores (Inside btm and on lip, R side), swollen lymph nodes RS, sore jaw. Clinic says strep. 1st time O herpes?
Probably: Probably. Your doc should prescribe antiviral medication. See https://www. Cda-adc. Ca/jcda/vol-68/issue-4/247.pdf
Have very bad swollen glands on neck, sore throart, no voice and sores on scalp since oct 1 2014, seen family dr twice says shingles meds not working?
Not shingles?: Your first three symptoms do not sound like shingles but severe pharyngitis/laryngitis, probably viral. You don't say if the sores on the scalp are painful, but the scalp is not a common place for shingles. I suspect you have an associated folliculitis (infected/inflamed hair follicles) and may need topical or oral antibiotics. I would consult a dermatologist. Good luck!See 1 more doctor answer
I have swollen glands once a month and cold sores almost every three weeks, im am extremely fatigued the doctor put it down to depression but it cant?

It hurts to swallow, have cold sores in mouth, swollen glands in neck, and somewhat achy all over; what would cause all these symptoms?
I have a swollen gland under my chin and on the left side of my jaw. I also have a cold sore on the left side of my bottom lip that is in some pain too. I've dealt with cold sores for around like ten year, but never had swollen glands. Just a little conce
I had developed sores on my face I had mouth ulcers and swollen glands. I am 7 days late for my period and my gums feel inflamed. Plz help?
Primary oral herpes?: Sounds like you might have primary (i.e. intitial infection) with oral herpes simplex virus, probably type 1 (HSV1). Effective treatment is available but must be started promptly. See your GP ASAP; or if it might have been sexually acquired (partner with known oral or genital herpes, new partner, etc) consider visiting one of UK's excellent NHS GUM clinics. Probably unrelated to your late period.

Prolonged sore throa: You may have a retro pharyngeal abscess.See a doctor. He may want to take an x-ray of your upper airway. Alternately you have a viral illness that can give you similarsymptoms.
Been v. tired, for no obvious reason, for about 8 weeks. Achy muscles, swollen glands and a sore throat on and off. Also cold sores. What's happening?
Hsv1+ and hsv2- for blood antibodies. Had cold sores before. Can I also get genital hsv 1 if exposed? Having swollen glands in groin. Itchy and tingle
No: If a person has antibodies to HSV1 (has immunity), she should not get new HSV1 infections in places that she did not get HSV1 sores in the past. New herpes lesions on the genitals would be presumed HSV2 (if the HSV2 antibodies turned positive on the blood tests after the new genital herpes sores). Life can surprise you sometimes. Maybe HSV1 was in the genitals in the past but wasn't noticeable.
Sore throat, swollen glands, swollen roof of mouth and under tongue and sores on tongue. What could it be?
Perhaps: Strep throat, mononucleosis, or other viruses. For significantly sore throat w swollen tonsils / lymph nodes – see physician & get a strep throat test & culture. Antibiotics are imperative for Strep Throat. Try saltwater gargles. Mix tsp of salt in 8 oz of warm water – gargle w this several times/day. You can gargle w Aloe Vera juice a couple of times per day.See 1 more doctor answer
Asymptomatic LN: I assume you mean swollen lymph nodes without any symptoms. This can be from a variety of different things. Infection generally causes symptoms however granulomas or cancer may not initially cause symptoms. Any asymptomatic swelling should be evaluated by a doctor to determine whether further testing should be done.
Monitoring Centers: 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.
Swollen glands: Swollen glands = inflamed lymph nodes (doesn't actually refer to true glands).
Node vs Saliva gland: Depending on location, swelling in the head and neck area may be one of more lymph nodes or one or more salivary glands. Painless swelling without recent infection or trauma in the area needs to be evaluated. I recommend a visit to your primary provider or an ent/ otolaryngologist.See 1 more doctor answer
