Swollen lymph nodes behind left ear. Taking Advil. Can nicotine patch be taken with Advil?

Simple query. My lymph nodes behind the left ear have been swollen for the last few days and I m taking Advil to relieve the soreness and swelling . Can I still use my nicotine patch without creating adverse effects to the Advil? Will the patch contribute to the swelling of the lymph nodes? The swelling just appeared on Friday so I figured I m just fighting an infection. No fever but I am tired...
