Sneezing, itchy eyes. I wake up with a sore throat, I have swollen lymph nodes in neck for awhile. What could be the cause? Allergies

Sneezing, itchy eyes. I wake up with a sore throat, I have swollen lymph nodes in neck for awhile. What could be the cause? Allergies

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

Infection: You describe a acute pharyngitis - swollen lymph gland (nodes) in your neck, with an element of systemic toxicity (headache and eyes) - i would want to rule out strep infection although a viral illness could mimic this.

Im having a severe allergic reaction to eyelash glue...taking fexofenadine Hydrochloride 180 mg...eyes are red, swollen, itchy...
what is maximum dose?

Contact allergy:eyes: A reaction to eyelash glue can be similar to poison ivy: it starts 1-4 days after exposure begins, involves a blistering rash, itches severely. It lasts +/- three weeks. This requires oral steroids frequently. Strong steroid creams are not used around the eyes because of risk of glaucoma/cataracts. Fexfenadine is not likely to control it. If continuing to get worse, see a doctor + get steroids. ...Read more
