Well, swelling in the neck and armpits generally means enlarged lymphnodes
which could mean anything simple or complicated. The ideal protocol is that any lymph node in the axilla
should be considered significant. I would advise you to do a complete antibiotic course for 7 to 10 days, (generally cloxacillin
) and then get yourself re-evaluated for the change in the size of the nodes. If the size is reducing, there is definitely nothing to worry, if the size is persistent or increasing and painless, you might need a further workup towards the diagnosis.
