It is a lymph node that is infected.Their are several of them in the neck area. If you scratch, have a pimple, or have a cold they will get larger and be sore. Often antibiotics are needed to get rid of the infection, and it sometimes takes a few weeks to go away.

How long after you get braces do they start to hurt?

It depends and it is unknown for everyone because everybody's teeth are different. Some are sensitive and some aren't. It usually hurts a couple hours later after you get your braces. It also usually can hurt up to as long as two weeks. I said CAN, though. For others, it hurts for a couple hours, a day, or two, or maybe even three etc..

first of all, if you don't love the person, get yourself out now. honestly. long-distance relationships are heart-wrenching. when you see a couple holding hands, it hurts. when you see a couple kissing, it hurts. but if you love your partner, then you can make it work. trust me ;] when you see that couple holding hands or kissing think, although i want to do that to my partner NOW, when i see them it will be so much sweeter knowing that i resisted temptation for this moment.
