Swollen Glands In Neck
How long does it take for swollen glands in neck to go down after having a cold? What is considered normal?
Depends..: Many infections can linger even after sore throat has resolved. In general most reactive lymph nodes diminish in size after a couple weeks once the agent is gone.

Confusing: If your GP was not able to palpate a lump, then is it gone?? Did you try and show him/her where it was located?? Anyway, chances are it is a reactive lymph node which should go away within a week. Suggest seeing your GP again if it is still there after 2 weeks ...Read more

Red itchy skin & ears & swollen glands in neck since moving to new place. Gets worse after i've been in laundry room. Using same detergents. Help!

If that doesn't work, you can use a hypoallergenic soap like neutrogena. If you are no better after these changes, you need to see a dermatologist or allergist. ...Read more
