Throat pain for over a month, been talking penicillin for a week with no improvement. Swollen glands on left side of neck. I don't feel sick. Help!

Viral pharyngitis: With throat pain and swollen glands one wants to be sure there is bacterial and not viral infection. If penicillin isn't working and WBC normal use warm gargle with peroxide. Antibiotics induce MRSA as a possible side effect of unnecessary antibiotic treatment. Warm soaks also applied to neck nodes.

Feels like two permanently swollen lymph nodes, just on left side of neck. One under jaw, other lower down neck. No pain, but always there. Reasons?

Cervical Lymph Nodes: Enlargement of the lymph nodes in the anterior chain of the neck can be a sign of active infection or occult disease. Non tender but enlarged lump nodes in the neck may be reacting to infections drainage from the head and neck including mononucleosis, &HIV disease. Lymphomas may present with non tender lymph node enlargement. Consider a head and neck exam and maybe antibiotics and needle biopsy.

I have had IBS for 5 years but for the last 3 months I have had dysphagia, swollen lymph nodes on right side of neck and sensation that some one is pu?

Sure, see GI doctor: Difficulty swallowing ("dysphagia") can be distinguished as a "transfer" problem (difficulty moving food from mouth to top of esophagus), "transit" problem (difficulty moving food down the esophagus), "spasm", gerd (due to sphincter problems), or obstructive (webs, rings, strictures, ulcer, tumor). Best to see a gastroenterologist (gi doctor) for evaluation and treatment.

Infection, shingles?: This sounds like a skin infection of some sort. It could be a bacterial infection (e.g. staph, strep, etc) but I'm more suspicious of herpes zoster (shingles). See a doctor ASAP. If bacterial, you'll need an antibiotic. If shingles, an antiviral drug (e.g. valacyclovir) needs to be started very soon to have maximum benefit.

My Son is experiencing enlarged or tender lymph nodes for 4 weeks. He has a large lymph node swollen behind his ear and smaller ones throughout left side of neck. He was diagnosed over 4 weeks ago with Cellulitis of the cartilage on his ear.

Infection: The lymph nodes are likely due to his cellulitis which is an infection of his skin. If the lymph nodes persist well after his infection clears, please see his doctor for a full physical examination.
