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?

Have you been seen for this as yet?

Doctor: Dr. SH, Board Certified Physician replied 3 years ago
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.
I would appreciate it if you rate me by clicking on one of the rating options (stars) below.

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?
Doctor: Dr. SH, Board Certified Physician replied 3 years 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

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
