  • We cannot help you. You need to take him to the dr. Swollen lymph nodes should always been evaluated by a dr.

  • I would take him to the Dr to make sure. But I had that when I had a really bad cold. Whenever I get bad colds now I get that all the time. But you should be on the safe side.

  • Give him a garlic pill. Lymph nodes are the bodies trash cans. Sometimes they get over filled.

    Mine will swell up when my sinuses are draining. I take a couple of garlic pills and within an hour the swelling & pain are gone.
