In brief: Not unusual

Children can have enlarged lymph nodes with or without infectious causes.
Most of the time these are just reactive lymph nodes and will resolve over time. Seek immediate treatment if the lymph node is red, warm or painful. If the lymph node does not resolve in a 4-5 days have his primary care provider evaluate the lymph node.
