Without seeing I wouldn't even know. Usually if lymph nodes are swollen though it means illness according to my doctor. He said that is why they always feel their necks. Sorry I am no help. Here is a bump for you.

 im sure they are swollen glands/nodes.  i get them sometimes and they do get sore.   reading about them i found out it is your body trying to fight something off, although i wasnt feeling sick at the time.  my cousin said it happened to his son to who is like a year old.  i wouldnt worry unless she starts really getting irritable.

Maybe it is from the cough? I wish kids came with manuals :)

Are they behind her ears?  My son has some behind his ears.  The doctor said they are lymph nodes.
