I constantly have issues with swollen lymph glands

Customer Question

Hello,
I constantly have issues with swollen lymph glands and salivatory glands. Normally after fighting off a cold, flu or virus. Is there anything over the counter or natural herbs that I can take to relieve the swelling?

Hi there.
Thank you for your question.
I will be helping you out with your queries.
How many lymph nodes are swollen?
Since how long are you having this problem?
Have you been seen for this as yet?
Any tests done?
Please let me know.

I am looking forward to your response.
Kind regards

Two to three lymph nodes that appear due to colds or respiratory infections are not something that I would worry about too much at all.
I myself have at least four lymph nodes in my neck that have been present for years which sometime get painful and swollen when I have a respiratory infection or a sore throat.
So this is not something that I would worry about unless you have a fever or a sore throat or symptoms of an infection currently which may need to be treated with an antibiotic course.
This session is open for any number of further followup questions that you may have.

Thanks for the information. The issue is that I'm losing my ability to hear out of my left ear because of the swelling. Again, is there anything else that I can do to fix this?
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 1 year ago.
How big is the swelling?
Do you have a picture or two which would demonstrate the swelling so that I could give you a better opinion.
Please let me know.
Kind regards
