Hi ,
As you have described your child has been diagnosed Primary complex and enlarged lymph nodes on her neck.She might have Tubercular lumphadenopathy also.But there is nothing to worry it will subside with treatment.
Antitubercular therapy should be given for 6 months for primary complex,be very serious over this.
Wishing early recovery for your child.
