Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic
It is quite possible that the masses or bumps that you feel are lymph
nodes. Lymph nodes are present at different points of the body and respond to inflammation or infection based on where they are located.
Cervical lymph nodes (nodes in the neck) are commonly enlarged in children because of the frequent colds that they experience. The common cold
involves infection of the nasal passages, throat and ears and these nodes drain most of these areas.
Normally they would resolve a few days to weeks after the infection has settled. This is provided another cold does not occur.
You can consider noting the size and location and re checking 2 to 3 weeks after this cold once she does not have another infection.
I hope this helps and she feels better soon
