After new partner I've had frequent herpes prodrome symptoms but never lesions, sores, etc. Swollen groin nodes, itch, tingles, sore back. What to do?

After new partner I've had frequent herpes prodrome symptoms but never lesions, sores, etc. Swollen groin nodes, itch, tingles, sore back. What to do?

Doctor can check: If a patient sees no lesions, it is hard to guess whether or not any symptoms are from herpes. Her doctor can help, perhaps by doing blood tests for herpes antibodies. If symptoms are happening often, perhaps a trial of preventive medication can be done, if the blood antibodies are positive for herpes. The partner's antibodies should be checked too, because one can only catch herpes from a person. ...Read more

I have a swollen groin lymph node, please help!?

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

Please tell me, could a knee injury cause swollen groin lymph nodes?

Please tell me, could a knee injury cause swollen groin lymph nodes?

Ask your pcp: Isoltated knee injuries (acl tear, meniscus tear, kneecap dislocations etc.)are not associated w/ inflamed inguinal lymph nodes in my experience. Infections in or around the knee could result in larger inguinal nodes but if u are concerned see your pcp for full evaluation. Best of luck! ...Read more

What kind of foot infection could cause a swollen groin lymph node?

What kind of foot infection could cause a swollen groin lymph node?

Swollen lymph nodes: Any type of foot infection that creates inflammation can cause the inguinal lymph nodes (those in the groin) to swell. The lymph nodes filter lymph fluid as it flows through them, trapping bacteria, viruses, and other foreign substances, which are then destroyed by special white blood cells called lymphocytes. See your doctor to treat the foot infection. Warm compresses can help the swelling. ...Read more

Swollen groin lymph nodes that are tender to touch & feel enlarged. Given 10 days of keflex, no change. Mri of pelvis did not reveal any swollen nodes?

Swollen groin lymph nodes that are tender to touch & feel enlarged. Given 10 days of keflex, no change. Mri of pelvis did not reveal any swollen nodes?

MRSA cellulitis?: Are they really lymph nodes and not localized skin infections? The fact that they are painful suggests infection. The lack of response to Keflex suggests methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (mrsa). I would recommend seeing your doctor and getting a medication that works for MRSA in your community (could be Clindamycin or bactrim; your local doctor will know best). ...Read more

Swollen groin lymph node, headache, body ache, dizziness, fatigue. What does this sound like?

You are afraid: It could be infection, or cancer. It really sounds like you are afraid to address this and I want to encourage you go to the doctor. It is very unlikely to just go away. If I had to guess, I would say it is an infection and you just need antibiotics. That gives me hope that this is curable. But even cancer in this region is very sensitive to treatment.
