Thank you for the information,
Lymph node enlargement usually occurs from an infection, or inflammation.
It depends on the draining area of the infection.
This can be associated with soreness.
After the infection has subsided, the lymph nodes may remain enlarged.
If the soreness continues, I would suggest to take an examination by doctor.
Motrin or naproxen can be tajen.
You can apply warm, moist compress.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.
