Cold sore on tongue caused a swollen lymph node under jaw. No longer painful but lymph node stayed and it wont go down. Is the lymph node a problem?

For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats.

If it persists more than a few months, see your doc. Good luck! ...Read more
