I think I have enlarged turbinates. Can this cause a swollen lymph node on neck if on same side? I'm concerned.

Lymph nodes: Tammy, every young adult has a couple of palpable lymph nodes. Some folks have a big one here, another there, another somewhere else.

Swollen turbinates for last 6 months. Dx vasomotor Rhinitis. Positive nasal swab for Coag Negative staph. Could this be cause of Vasomotor Rhinitis?

Definitely not: A culture like that is essentially useless. Staph CN organisms in this setting are 'just along for the ride' and have nothing to do with your sinus disease. That might have been different if a true pathogen was found (like Strep) but I'm pretty sure this is just what we call 'normal flora'. The sinuses are not a sterile place, so there are ordinary bacteria there. I would seek more about ALLERGY. ...Read more

Other soft tissue infections in that location are also possible but less likely. Have your ophthalmologist check this out. You will probably need an acceptable antibiotic and focal heat treatment. ...Read more
