About two weeks ago when I had a cold sore I noticed a lot of my left lymph nodes (neck and head) were swollen... two weeks later and they still are??

In brief: Time

The enlarged lymph nodes are the body's response to an infection and may take up to 6 weeks to resolve.
If the problem persists beyond 6 weeks or are getting larger, contact your doctor
