Dear customer,

Thank you for the question.

Eating raw garlic will have no effect on the lymph nodes. This will not cause your lymph nodes to enlarge.

Take care.

Please let me know if you have any further question.

Please rate the answer with 5-stars.

Thank you!

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.
