Dermatologist 's  Response

See you seem to be developed multiple swollen lymph ones.
In many cases, such swellings can be totally benign and can be due to simple viral illness or any infections.
But this condition can not simply be ignored.
You surely need a complete evaluation for use cause of such a generalized lymph node enlargement. You should see a nearby physician for the same.
You might need certain investigation to find the cause of this lymph node enlargement.
