I have got TWO enlarged lymph nodes present below my ears. They are quite visible and are present for at least one week. I have got slight cold. Please give advice.

Hello, Thanks for the query. The lymph node enlargement may have happened due to ear as well as pharyngeal infection. So along with cold if you also have throat soreness and difficulty in swallowing and ear pain, you may need a course of antibiotics. Plus also do warm water and salt gargling. Thanks.
