Swollen neck "glands" are usually not true glands, but lymph nodes, part of the bodies "filtration" system and immune system for fighting infections and dealing with many different threats to the body. The can sometimes remain swollen for many weeks after infections or occasionally for unknown reasons. If the lymph node is continuing become more swollen or remains significantly swollen over more than 5 or 6 weeks, the cause may be serious (even with no associated discomfort) or not, but the safest way to rule out most serious problems may be to surgically remove the lymph node and send it for study by a laboratory and also to send some blood tests. Those tests may include a blood cell count and HIV testing. If the lymph node is slowly becoming smaller over several weeks, that is usually, but not always, a sign that the cause is not serious. The question is a bit unclear as to timing of the events, but if a lymph node was swollen and then became smaller or normal size over several weeks, and then there occurred a throat infection, treated by an antibiotic, it does not seem likely that there is any connection between those very common events.
Antibiotics. Take her to a vet.
First, you have an allergy and probably an infection. You can take allergy medicine and you can put something like iodine on it. You are trying to clean out the infection. Then if it does not start going down you can get antibiotics. Depending on what you mean by very swollen, you can skip the allergy medicine and iodine step and go for the antibiotics.
Only if the swollen tonsils and sore throat are caused by a bacterial infection. Antibiotics (such as Amoxicillin) can not and will not have any effect whatsoever on viral infections. This is why people cannot and should not treat themselves with antibiotics. Get an accurate diagnosis from a doctor.
The infection displays itself in forms of swollen or tender skin around the nail. Antibiotics will cure the bacterial infection, but fungal infections will need antifungal creams or tablets such as Terbinafine.
You should be going back to your doctor about this. The steroids may be preventing the body fighting infection so the antibiotics may not have worked and you still have an infection.
Yes, swollen lymph nodes could be a symptom of infection.
Yes, but if it doesn't get better in another two or three days, call your doctor and let them know.
The time in which it takes to rid swollen glands can depend upon the bacteria that caused the sickness. A virus will most likely go away on it's own, within a week to 10 days. If it is a bacterial infection, antibiotics may be necessary in order to clear the infection completely.
I DON'T UNDERSTAND YOUR QUESTION. An eye infection is obvious, it is swollen, red, and pus filled. This is usually caused by a viral infection.
You may be describing Quinke's disease (also called uvular hydrops), an infection of the uvula which can be very irritating and painful. This is treated with antibiotics.
If it is to swollen it might have an infection otherwise it should be fine
You have a infection in your mouth
Yes. It is possible for only one of your glands to be swollen. Lymph nodes typically swell nearest to a body infection, so there may be a minor infection wherever it is swollen or if you have been sick recently. Even acne can create a swollen gland near the face or under the chin. However, if the gland is hard and really painful- you need to get it checked out by your doctor. This usually means that your glands are having trouble fighting the infection and need the aid of antibiotics or other treatment.
You might have a swollen ear after a cold because you have an ear infection. You might also have swollen lymph nodes that make the ear appear swollen.
The swollen leg and a rash maybe a sign of cellulitis. Gram staining should be done and antibiotics will be given.
Take some Ibuprofen for swelling and pain. If you have severe redness, severe swelling, and/or a yellow or greenish discharge that smells bad, see a doctor for antibiotics because infection is possible.
its a swollen lymph glad. it feels really sore for a while but will go away in a few days/wks. Antibiotics might help if its swollen from an infection (such as infected earrings).
I just came from the vet scheduled because of my dogs swollen lymph nodes. The vet believes it to be either an infection or lymphoma (cancer). Make an appointment with your vet. They will most likely prescribe antibotics to eliminate any infections. If after antibiotics if the lymph nodes are still swollen they will perform a biopsy. Best wishes.
No, that is a sign of an infection.
because you have a ear infection.
