In brief: Few days or weeks
Mild, uncomplicated cases of mesenteric lymphadenitis usually go away on their own within a few days or weeks.
Over-the-counter (otc) pain relievers and anti-inflammatories (tylenol, motrin, advil) may help relieve discomfort. Antibiotics may be prescribed if there is suspicion of a bacterial infection.
